Schoonover explained that track has always been big for him, and something that has motivated and helped him figure out where he wanted to go with his life. He has been a part of track for nine years. Schoonover’s love of track explains why he got the U.S.A Track and Field logo tattooed on his back. It is Schoonover’s only tattoo, but it is clearly something quite meaningful to him.
