Udall’s Kierran Hoffman: Athlete Spotlight-Presented by WSI

After his freshman season, Udall’s Kierran Freshman decided that he was going to hang up his track spikes and put his all into soccer due to some personal struggles he had with finding confidence while running.

“Since I was really young, I have always played soccer, which was where I thrived the most,” Hoffman said. “I always like to consider myself one of the best on the soccer field, but I wanted to continue to do better.”

As a senior, Hoffman has decided to lace the spikes back up for one more go around.

“I initially went out for track this year as it was my senior year and figured it would be one more fun thing to do during high school,” Hoffman said. “This year, my events were the 400, 800, 4×400, 4×800, and pole vault.”

Hoffman’s mindset and leadership are two of the many things that have helped him thrive this year. “Kierran has been an incredible leader for our team,” head coach Tina Clausen said. “He is a great leader and helps motivate his teammates to do their best. He has come out this year and been a key part of our success in the 4×400 and 4×800. He continually gives his best effort and does what he can to grow as a person on and off the field.”
