Q and A: Munford runner Cameron Ireland may or may not bring home news tips to his dad

0

Cameron Ireland, who also happens to be my son, is a senior member of the Munford High School track team who runs the 800 meters and the 4×800 relay. He has been a member of the track team for three years and the cross country team for four. He will attend Christian Brothers University in the fall and scored a 33 on the ACT. I debated for four years whether or not do a Q and A with him because, well, I didn’t want to be that guy who puts his kid in the paper because he’s your kid. But he’s earned it with four years of hard work so I decided to use my tremendous influence as the sports editor of the largest paper in Tipton County to give him some much-deserved recognition.
