Sophomore track and field sprinter Bryce Kirby has become a man of many talents for the Broncos.  He is a 2016 All-Mountain West Honoree in Outdoor track and fields his speed has continued even off the track.

Kirby who is an Idaho native from Mountain View High School has quickly made a name for himself for the Broncos.  In the regular season, Kirby had the number 2 fastest time in the Mountain West Conference in the 60m dash.

“Bryce is a big part of our team he almost has run indoor Pr’s that our faster than outdoor PR's which is great,” said, Sprinter Coach, Gavin O'Neal.

His talents have extended beyond the track, Kirby can solve the 1977 hit toy the Rubik Cube in under 30 seconds.

"I don't think I have gone a day that I haven't solved the Rubik cube at least once.  I picked this up my senior year in high school and it kinda stuck with me, cause It's something that can keep me more focused on,” said, Sprinter Bryce Kirby.

The Rubik Cube is also rubbing off on fellow teammates and Sprints Coach Gavin O’Neal.  Which he says it's brought better camaraderie for all.

"I think in total on the track team alone I’ve taught maybe four or five people how to do this it's always people coming to me how do solve this," said, Kirby.

"It's nice for a coach to see your athletes have other things outside of track and field that they are passionate about.  This is one of the fun things he is passionate about which is great for him," said, O’Neal.

This past week Kirby came in 4th in the 60M dash final of the Mountain West Indoor Championships in Albuquerque, New Mexico.  While Kirby was waiting on the podium the track star was solving his Rubiks Cube.

Kirby will now get for the outdoor season where he will compete in the 100 and 200-meter dash.
