Cross Country Season Outlook

Pepperdine begins the 2014 season at the Mark Covert Classic.

HIGH SCHOOL: Graduated from California High School, located in Whittier, Calif., in 2014 ... Helped his school to a second-place finish at the 2012 state cross country meet ... A three-year varsity member of both the cross country and track teams ... Qualified for the CIF Finals in cross country as a senior ... Ran on the winning 4x1,600-meter team at the Mt. SAC Relays in 2014 and set a school record ... Was on the Principal's Honor Roll every semester.

PERSONAL: Born in Orange, Calif. ... Son of Rudy Gonzalez and Linda Gonzalez ... Has one brother, Roger ... Majoring in psychology ... Chose to attend Pepperdine because "of its small class sizes and because it is on the Malibu coast."

FAVORITES: Enjoys playing guitar and learning other musical instruments ... Favorites include Clayton Kershaw (pro athlete), Los Angeles Dodgers (pro team), The Road (book), Rocky (movie), Queens of the Stone Age (musical artist), pizza (food) and baseball (sport other than running) ... Favorite thing about running is "that it doesn't only strengthen your body, but your mind also. It takes a lot of mental strength to convince your body that it can run at speeds it is unfamiliar with."
