Great job Emma!

April Athlete of the Month

Posted by Urbandale | Posted in Uncategorized | Posted on 08-04-2015


  Cory Harding, a Senior at Norwalk High School, is Acceleration Iowa’s Athlete of the Month for April.  Cory is a dual sport athlete in football and track.  He plays running back and runs the 100m sprint in track.  Cory has been training with Acceleration Iowa since his freshmen year, and is currently the all-time speed record holder for the treadmill at 25mph!  His favorite memory at Acceleration Iowa was running the 25mph because he is on top of the leader boards!

Cory’s goals for this track season are to win the 100m at the State Track Meet at the 3A level, and place in the top 3 at the Drake Relays.  He also wants to make his 100m time a consistent 10.9 and below to help his track team win meets.

For his recruiting process, he was scouted by many D1/D1AA schools.  Cory was looked at his junior and senior year by Iowa State, Iowa, NDSU, SDSU, Holy Cross, and Wyoming.  He was also looked at by Morning side, Grand view, and Minnesota State.  Cory chose ISU because he really loved the education system and football program.  They have great coaches, facilities, and build players that have a lot of potential.  He currently has a walk-on offer from ISU!
