Sara was introduced to cross country in fourth grade Vype
Originally Appeared on Vype
WHO: Sara Price, St. Agnes, Sophomore
WHAT: Won the VYPE Private School Girls Cross Country Top Athlete Poll
VYPE: How long have you been running cross country and how did you get start?
SP: My brother introduced me to the sport when I was in fourth grade. As a fourth grader, cross country was the only sport I could compete in for my school, and I knew and loved the Coaches: Coach Marion Jones and Coach Anthony Arthur Lee. They taught me what it means to truly work hard and never give up. I am so grateful for them, and they are one of the main reasons I continued cross country.
VYPE: What is your favorite and least favorite part about running?
SP: My favorite thing about running is the community. My team is the most supportive, loving group of people I have ever met, and I cannot imagine running without them. My Saint Agnes Coach, Coach Robbins, inspires me to work hard every day and has always believed in me no matter what. My least favorite part is the mile repeats because it is truly one of the hardest things I have ever done.
VYPE: What is your pregame routine? (Meals, songs, superstitions, etc.)
SP: My pregame routine includes a LOT of pasta (marinara is the best) and a motivating pep talk in which I outline my goals for the race and remind myself that I am a competitor. I discard any negative thoughts and listen to some really good music.

Coming off an exciting win over the Denver Broncos, the Houston Texans now shift their attention to a showdown with the New York Jets this Sunday.
Behind enemy lines
At this early stage in the week, it's still unclear who the Jets will be starting at QB. There are rumors that Zach Wilson could be back in the mix, but if not, the Jets will likely roll with Trevor Siemien or newly signed Brett Rypien as Tim Boyle was released on Tuesday.
Points figure to be hard to come by for New York, as they are 30th in the league in points scored at 14.3 per game. Vegas agrees that this looks like a low scoring affair, with this game having the third-lowest total of the week at 33.5. Houston is currently favored to win by 6.5 points.
Editor's note: The total for the game has shifted since the recording of the video. The numbers above reflect the current odds as of this writing.
The Jets much like the Broncos struggle to defend the run (27th in rushing yards against), but the Texans have been unable to get the ground game going for much of the season.
Houston will look to get points through the air with CJ Stroud, but yards won't come easy. The Jets are third in passing yards against per game at 176.58.
The Texans will get their first taste of life without star rookie Tank Dell, and Nico Collins could have to deal with All-Pro corner Sauce Gardner for most of the day.
We'll learn a lot about the Texans offense sans Dell this Sunday. Robert Woods and Noah Brown are going to have to do better than zero combined receptions, like they recorded against Denver.
