FAIRBANKS, Alaska - Today at West Valley High School, at 3 PM, Camron Herron kick started the first day that high school students can sign their National Letters of Intent.
Herron signed his Letter of Intent to compete for the University of Arizona Wildcats next year.
He signed in the West Valley Library, and is joining a program that races in the PAC 12, and a Wildcats program that placed fourth in the conference championships in the men's division last season.
During Herron's junior season with the Wolfpack, he showed off Division I talent and athleticism.
Herron took the gold in the boys' 800 meter run with a blistering 1 minute and 54.27 race, beating the field by nearly 2 seconds.
He also helped West Valley claim first and snatch the gold in the 4 by 400 meter relay race at 3 minutes and 27.88 seconds, which was a difference of only .71.
Herron spoke afterwards at the NLI on his decision.
"It was intimidating at first, just realizing that they're pros and collegiate runners and I am an Alaskan high school kid. But I wanted this since my sophomore year, and I told my Dad that I wanted to be put into a race with people that can run fast and see if I can hold on," said Herron.
