GREATER HOUSTON: EYES ON THE END GAME

Posted on Jul 07 2020 01:17 AM

The 2020 track & field season marks Greater Houston Track Club’s seventh year in existence. Founded in 2013 by CJ Singleton and Keith Stubblefield, GHTC has quickly risen to the upper echelon of youth track & field in the United States. By 2019, the club and its coaches had developed of over 500 Junior Olympians, 200 National Champions, and produced the most qualifiers for the 2019 AAU Junior Olympics. When probed as to the secret behind the club’s success, Coach CJ credits an extremely talented coaching staff, a dedicated group of parents, and youth athletes that are immensely committed to achieving their goals. 

It’s said that “beauty is in the eye of the beholder”, in the case of Greater Houston it appears the same applies to “success”. While Coach Singleton and the GHTC coaching staff are elated with the accolades they’ve earned on the track at the youth level, they have not lost sight of their ultimate goal of getting their runners into college. As a result of the combined efforts of the athletes, coaches, parents, and administrative staff, Greater Houston will send six athletes to college on a full or partial athletic scholarship in the fall of 2020.

This has become a staple of the Greater Houston culture; their athletes understand that athletics, coupled with academics, can provide an opportunity of a lifetime. The following list of student-athletes are living proof of the GH way: 

  • Bryson Stubblefield – Signed with TCU
  • Robert Gregory – TCU
  • Avery Helm - Florida
  • Arajanae Jackson – Lamar University
  • Everett Tippins – Sam Houston
  • Oriana Gee – CBU

We congratulate everyone involved with the Greater Houston organization for a job well done; their approach to youth track & field has yielded fantastic outcomes and paved the path for the collegiate competition for many of their athletes. Speed Capital remains a huge supporter and looks forward to seeing the GHTC athletes burning up the track at the “SCTX Invitational” in June of 2021.
