Hudson, a transfer from East Carolina, approaches track with a similar attitude. He said when he decided to transfer he did not want to waste the opportunity.
“Last year I didn’t even make it to nationals, this year I made it,” he said. “I made significant progress to show that the change was worth making.”
Hudson and the rest of the Alabama track and field team will participate Saturday in the second competition of the outdoor season at home in the Crimson Tide Invitational.
Coach Dan Waters said the team is excited to start the outdoor season, and he wants the team to be more consistent going forward. Waters said consistency is one area where Hudson excels.
“[Hudson is] a model for our other athletes,” Waters said. “He has stepped right in and become one of the top combination sprints/jumps athletes in the SEC, and that’s an impressive feat.”
Hudson was recently ranked in the 2015 collegiate Top 20 in both the long jump and the 60.
Hudson said he has already put the indoor season and his success there behind him.
“Every meet is another chance to compete,” he said.
