In this episode of the Forza Athletics Life and Coaching Podcast I caught up with Akron Zip and New York State Champion thrower William Gross IV. I had the opportunity to work with William the summer before his senior year of high school through the indoor track & field season as William prepared for a run at winning a New York State Championship in the 25# weight throw.

William and I discussed his high school career, what it meant to win a New York State Championship, the recruiting process, selecting a college, and making the transition to Division I thrower.

William gives some great advice for up and coming throwers about being focused, having a plan, and what to look for when making the decision to select the college/university you want to attend after high school.

William is one of 6 male throwers in New York State history to throw the 25# weight over 70' and throw the 12# shot-put 50' in the same season. William accomplished this feat in the same meet, his New York State Championship qualifier meet.

William is now completing his freshman year at Akron University. He is a Chemical Engineering major.
