Henderson Native, SFA Track Star Tries For Olympic Berth

A Stephen F. Austin track star will attempt to make the U.S. Olympic Team this week. Price Carlisle grad DeVaughn Rettig has qualified for the Olympic trials in the triple jump, and he admits, he has a few butterflies.

"Oh man, it's going to be like, very, very nervous competing against some people that I see on TV and I never thought I would compete against," said Rettig, "so yeah, it's going to be a good highlight of my life. It's going to be something that I would definitely remember."

The U.S. Track and Field Olympic Trials begin Thursday in Sacramento, California.
