Friday Night Sports Hero: Tom Moss of North Platte Cross Country
The vocal leader consistently finds himself at the top of leaderboards
NORTH PLATTE, Neb. (KNOP) -
Tom Moss caught the running bug when he was in the 8th grade and North Platte middle school began a cross country team. Since his first days being apart of a team, Tom has been a natural leader.
“He’s been a great teammate and leader in general, he’s a very vocal person,” said teammate and Friday Aaron Franz.
Cross Country can be thought of as an individualized sport, but some would be surprised at how team oriented it can be. Tom Moss has thrived on that team environment.
“The team aspect is a huge thing for me, I love seeing everybody getting better at everything and how much fun we have together is just a huge thing for me,” said Moss.
Whether it’s the team going on a run, or just hanging out outside of school, Tom has a way of bringing people together that his coach admires.
“Tom’s really good at just getting the guys together and hanging out, shooting them texts, when we’re running we’re really challenging each other,” said North Platte cross country head coach Jake Hassenauer.
