On Friday afternoon, Princeton cross country star T.J. Tate put pen to paper, officially signing to continue his athletic career at Ferrum College.
Tate has been one of the best runners for the Tigers in the last few years, as he holds school records in the 5k, mile run, and 4×800 relay. He has also qualified for the state meet in each of the last three years.
“I’m super excited,” Tate says, “This is what I’ve worked for since I was little. I’ve overcome a bunch of obstacles, and to be here is a blessing.”
Tate says that he decided to sign with Ferrum because he felt at home when he visited the school.
