Brian Graybill enters his first season as a volunteer assistant with the track and fieldprogram - his first in a non-competition setting at Mizzou. Graybill was a two-time All-Big 12 honoree and an Academic All-Big 12 honoree during his time as a student-athlete under Coach McGuire and the rest of the Tiger coaching staff.
A seasoned middle distance runner, Graybill was one of the Tigers' top milers last season as he set the team's top marks in the event during both the indoor and outdoor season in 2009. Graybill graduated from Mizzou last year and is currently seeking a graduate degree in mechanical and aerospace engineering.
Graybill earned one of the most-coveted NCAA post-graduate scholarships earlier this year; only 29 of the scholarships that Graybill earned are offered for all NCAA men's spring sports participants.
