AUSTIN, Texas – The BYU track team wrapped a solid season with a good showing at the NCAA Championships but it was one of the coaches who got folks talking on social with his antics at the meet.
The team’s director of operations Isaac Wood was captured on video cheering on his athletes while screaming at the top of his lungs while Cougars distance runner Clayton Young captured the national championship in the 10,000-meter.
Wood’s enthusiasm, while probably quite reasonable, was quite surprising for someone in attendance at a track meet.

The replies to the tweeted video were quite funny as well.
