Binghamton University Male Athlete of the Year 2009-2010 & 2010-2011.
Erik has a number of strengths as an emerging elite USA miler. I feel his greatest strengths are his durability, vision, and mental focus. He is a very unique athlete and has an amazing passion for the sport of track and field. He is a true student of the sport.
Over the past four years Erik has never developed a major injury due to training. He has developed well with volume from 60-100 mile weeks. He can successfully manage 80-90 mile weeks along with one to two high intensity workouts and/or a competition. I believe we have managed his racing schedule well and he has not been over raced. The training philosophy at Binghamton is more quality than quantity and there is a serious focus on staying well balanced with regards to both training and life. He manages the stress of training and competition well and does a great job of taking good care of his body during and outside of training.
Erik has had great vision and mental focus while at Binghamton. He has successfully been able to achieve his goal of becoming an All-American and one of the top NCAA milers through a number of growing pains. He has successfully learned how to listen to his body with regards to training intelligently and has become extremely coachable over the years. While only running 4:19 for 1600m in high school, Erik was not the least bit unsure he couldn’t break 4:00 for the mile and become one of the top milers in the NCAA. He has the vision of becoming one of the USA’s top milers and an Olympian. I am confident he will continue to challenge himself in the same way at the post collegiate level. He is an extremely focused athlete both on and off the track. His priorities lie well within running and film.
