Ahmad Brock, one of the most talented athletes in the Cape-Altantic League, and South Jersey, for that matter, has committed to Monmouth University to continue his education and track career, Egg Harbor Township boys track coach Ryan Smith announced via social media tonight.

Brock, a former Glory Days Magazine Boys Soccer Player of the Year, chose track over soccer. He’s also playing basketball this season as a senior and has helped the Eagles to get off to a 5-1 start. As a junior on the soccer pitch, Brock scored 27 goals and racked up 15 assists while leading the Eagles to the South Jersey Group 4 championship game, and in a COVID-shortened 2020 season he still managed 23 goals and eight assists.

As a sophomore, Brock scored top-10 finishes at sectionals in outdoor track in the 100 meters and triple jump, and although he missed his junior outdoor season due to the coronavirus, last winter Brock took second at states and fifth in the Meet of Champions in the 55-meter dash.

“Ahmad has been around our program for 7 years. He has done everything we have asked of him and did it his own way,” coach Smith said in a social media post. “Many said that he would need to follow in his brother Amir Brock’s footsteps. He created his own footsteps from the first time he ran for EHT Track Club all the way up to his 5th-place finish in his junior year Meet of Champions 55-meter dash. He has been a great captain/leader for our sprint team and one of the most fierce competitors to come through our program.”
