Starkville Academy track and field athlete A.J. Williard will be very busy this weekend at the AAA State meet in Jackson.
Willard not only has qualified for the 800, 1600 and 3200 meter runs for the Volunteers at State, but he will also run a leg of the 4x800 relay team.
Having the responsibility of so many events at the highest stage in MAIS, Willard has been chosen the OCH Regional Medical Center Athlete of the Week.
