“Breyan is the epitome of what we want in every one of our student-athletes here at Dickinson State. He is a good student and works hard on the track. He is an extremely coachable kid who isn’t afraid of hard work or trying something different. Breyan is a very grounded individual with high character. We were blessed to have him here at Dickinson State. I know moving forward he will be very successful whether it’s on the track or in the working field. But I know he has some unfinished business next week at the NAIA National Championships in Alabama,” said Head Track and Field Coach Jace Schillinger.
