Jenoah McKiver

Andrews' Jenoah McKiver is the HSXtra.com All-Area Boys Track and Field Athlete of the Year.

Compiled by staff writer Joe Sirera.

ATHLETE OF THE YEAR

JENOAH McKIVER, junior, Andrews

• Won the 200 meters (21.97 seconds) and the 400 meters (48.59) at the NCHSAA Class 2-A championships.

• Also ran the third leg on the Red Raiders’ third-place team in the 4X400 relay.

• Starting quarterback last fall on Andrews’ football team.

Coach Eric Berry: “Jenoah McKiver did not want to run track. He was talked into it as a sophomore. He ran in three meets and was average: 54-second 400, not fast enough to run the 200 and a 2:10 800. Jenoah worked hard and did everything his coach told him to do and the rest is history. A 47.89 400, a 21.82 200, two regional and two individual state championships and qualifying for New Balance Outdoor Nationals in his two individual events. Jenoah ‘Quiet Storm’ McKiver takes his place among the Red Raiders greats.”
