About
One of the better distance runners in NCAA history, Derrick is one of only six men to finish in the top ten at the NCAA Cross Country Championships all four years, which he accomplished during his standout career at Stanford. Derrick capped off his strong 2013 campaign, which included a USA Cross Country title in February, with a world championships birth in the 10,000m. Despite his young age, Derrick is a veteran of international teams in cross country after placing 15th at the World Junior Cross Country Championships in 2009 and helping Team USA to an overall second place team finish earlier in 2013 at the World Cross Country Championships, where he placed 10th overall.
