A quarterback in the fall, Adam Fox has a cannon for a right arm. It is an arm that translates well to track and field, and the javelin throw.
Fox is also driven, focused and motivated. It is a competitive spirit that translates well into any athletic endeavor he chooses to pursue.
On Friday afternoon at Shippensburg University’s Seth Grove Stadium, during the opening day of the District Three Track and Field Championships, his strong right arm and strong will to win served Fox well. The Annville-Cleona junior out distanced the competition to capture the Class AA gold medal.
Fox entered the competition seeded second behind defending champion Matt Reinhart of Berks Catholic. But on his second attempt after reaching the finals, Fox unleashed a 173-7, which was three feet farther than Reinhart, who finished as the runner-up.
Fox has been heaving the javelin for three years now, and under the right circumstances in the future would consider pursuing the discipline on the college level.
