Isaac Frumkin Named U.S. Army Impact Player Of The Month

September 29, 2017

Isaac Frumkin, a senior who only started running track and cross country full time after his sophomore year at Woodrow Wilson High School, has been named the District of Columbia State Athletic Association U.S. Army Impact Player of the Month.

Frumkin is co-captain of the Tigers' cross country team. He also runs the 800 and 1,600 meters for the Wilson track team.

"His dedication and hard work is pretty unrivaled on the team," Woodrow Wilson cross country coach Nora Swift said. "He really has put the work in to make himself the athlete that he is -- as well as the student that he is. ... He really is a testament to hard work and effort and caring and dedication paying off. 

"I'm massively proud of Isaac for all of the accomplishments he's done."

Frumkin said baseball was "his first love," and he was a catcher until he tore the labrum in his shoulder during his sophomore year.

"So then I committed myself 100 percent and just kind of fell in love with the sport of running," he said, "and I fell in love with the team atmosphere here at Wilson."

Frumkin said he was "truly honored" to receive the award.

"It's just a testament to all the help I've received over the years from my parents, my coaches, my teammates," he said.

"Every day I just try to impact whatever community that I'm in, whether it's at school or at track. And I try to give 100 percent to that thing so that I can set a good example for my teammates and hopefully leave a legacy."
