Over the past few months I have seen a great deal of buzz about this young man...Eliot Halverson.
He has been the poster boy for the upcoming national championships...of the senior men competitors, he's the only one from St. Paul (however it stands to reason that Rohene Ward from Minneapolis will have some support as well). He's made appearances all over the place, he's been plastered all over the USFSA and Ice Network websites, and he's the featured skater at Figure Skaters Online. Ummm, he must be pretty spectacular!
But aside from his celebrity I knew literally nothing about him. I discovered he was the Junior Champ at last years National Championships. I also discovered he was tenth at last years Junior Worlds. He's also a previous Novice Champ.
Can this kid live up to his hype?
