"I'm so proud of this freshman Davon Carroll who had a choice to go anywhere, and he chose Bowie State University. He is a humble young man that doesn't let his wins go to his head. Davon was a stellar high school athlete and this year as a freshman, he was able to perform well to not just qualify for nationals but make it to the big dance," said BSU track and field coach Michelle Latimer.
