Run, Deon! Run! Aggie sprinter Deon Lendore has been selected as a finalist for the 2014 The Bowerman Trophy, the highest individual award in collegiate track and field. There will be an online fan vote from July 28th through August 12th for an entry in the final voting process. When that becomes available, we will direct you to their site and you do what Aggies do better than anyone else: win online voting contests. If Deon wins the award this December, Texas A&M will be the first university to have won both the Men's and Women's trophy, won in 2011 by Jessica Beard. Makes you remember that Aggie track has EIGHT NCAA National Championships between the two teams since 2009. So, make sure you commit yourself to going to watch these ladies and gentlemen in action for their next season.
