"I really had a good time with Jason and he was a great guy to be around," said Szafranski. "I have been to Western quite a bit but I was surprised at how many places I didn't know existed as far as the campus stuff like housing."
Szafranski did have one thing on his visit that stood out as well.
"I just love the new indoor facility," said Szafranski. "It is going to be nice to train in when there is bad weather. It is a lot softer than the stadium turf too."

"I've worked a lot with Scott Boyd there on my speed and flexibility," said Szafranski. "I've actually trimmed my 40 time from a 4.8 to a 4.5 so I'm happy with the results."
Szafranski also participates in track at Harper Creek where he runs the 100, 200, 4x100 and the long jump.

Szafranski is a full academic qualifier with a 4.0 GPA and an ACT score of 23.
