Elijah "Yohan Blake" Chapman A Story of Greatness

Elijah "Yohan Blake" Chapman, a Redshirt Sophomore on the Southern Oregon University Track team, visualizing success as he prepares for a tough workout in the weight room.
Setting up proper form for a front squat (185 lbs), executing the lift, and the recovery after, is all part of the process of gaining critical strength needed in Elijah's quads.
Elijah attempts a hang clean, and then receives valuable technique tips from one of his coaches.
A single leg sprinter lunge with a sweep through helps Elijah gain explosive strength for every stride on the track.
Elijah is a big supporter of Raider Athletics, and can be seen at nearly every sporting event. He celebrated the beginning of his 21st Birthday at the Football game with fellow teammates.
Later on that night, Elijah enjoyed his first legal drink, an apple cider, at the local Growler Guys.
The birthday shenanigans resulted in acquiring a random beanie.
The rightful end for any 21st.
Elijah spent an off day doing an upper body workout.
Hurdle mobility drills help keep Elijah limber and loose.
While track is an individual sport, it takes a team to bring home a championship. The 400 group gets through a tough workout together as they gear towards defending our Conference Championship.
A student first, athlete second, Elijah is just as dedicated in the classroom, as he is on the track.
Track may seem as easy as running left in a circle, but after this workout, Elijah may beg to differ.
Elijah is known for his booming laugh, and charming smile. Here we see him consumed with laughter.
We all secretly do it for the cool running pictures.
Smacking his roommate/teammate Zach Beltz in Madden, in his favorite Timbs.
The driving force behind Elijah's will for greatness, lies in the love of his Mother Samoine.
