He was awesome in high school posting 8:41 for 3200m and competing well at the mile distance. I'm sure Luke had big expectation as long as many track fans once he hit college. After a fairly nice Freshman campaign which including representing the U.S. at World Jr. things seem to fall apart for Luke.
He's Sophmore season isn't nearly as good as his Freshman year and while others like Chris Derrick, A.J., and German continue to improve Puskedra seems to be on the decline. A.J. ranked up 19pts in 3 events and Luke Puskedra only managed 5pts at the PAC-10 in which he only scored in the 10000m and failed to ANYTHING in the 5000m.
Check out some of the predictions posters across the web had for Puskedra after his freshman year in college. What do you think is hampering him from his GREAT potential?
