2015 – Jeff Perrella

A standout at Yale, Jeff Perrella was the charismatic leader the club needed in its first year of 2011.  That spring, Perrella won every race he competed in for the black and gold, including the Penn Relays Distance Classic, USATF East Region 10k, President’s Cup, and USATF Club National 10k.  He also did much organizing for the club, playing a huge role in getting the College Ave Mile off the ground in 2012.  While injuries have hampered him since 2013, his team-oriented approach to training and racing defined the club’s subsequent culture, success, and cohesion.
