QUINCY, Ill. (WGEM) -- One of Quincy High's best long distance runners is now signed, sealed, and delivered.

Blue Devil senior Brendan Kroeger pledged to run track and cross country at Illinois-Springfield on Thursday afternoon.

The additional two miles he'll race in cross country meets is a challenge he's ready to accept.

It's a very exciting day. It's like a new stepping stone in what my life is going to be next year and all the things (that) will come with it," Kroeger said.

"I think the biggest problem will be the mileage. It's five miles instead of three miles. It's going to be a whole different race and a different pace. It's going to be completely different."

Kroeger says he had an open mind on where to attend college. He says a conversation with a former teammate convinced him to take his skills to Illinois-Springfield.
