Jose, a senior cross country and track athlete, was also named Orange League Male Athlete of the Year. Deemed the greatest distance runner in Anaheim High history by Coach Brian Castelli, Madera has the 22 fastest times run on 11 different cross country courses over the past 12 years by an Anaheim long-distance runner.
His fastest time is 14:30 at The Woodbridge Cross Country Classic and 15:02 at Mt Sac, which are considered astonishing and among the 10 fastest in the CIF this year across all divisions. Madera will be attending the University of San Francisco on a full athletic scholarship in cross country this fall.
