One of Oxford’s own is among those in the running for USA Track & Field’s highest honor.
Sam Kendricks is one of nine finalists for the USATF Jesse Owens Male Athlete of the Year. Honoring the nation’s top male and female track and field athletes annually since 1981, the Jesse Owens and Jackie Joyner-Kersee award winners are determined by a combination of media voting (90 percent) and online fan balloting (10 percent).
Fan voting is open at USATF Zone and will end Oct. 14 at 10:59 CT. Votes can be cast once per day until then.
