Dylan Kucera | Faces of Midland


A Tale of Fate

The thing about happiness is that sometimes it comes from the unlikeliest places and is born from actions that we didn’t think would make us happy.

Dylan was born in Fremont. He lived in Fremont for a few years  before moving to a small town called Howells, Nebraska, where he went to school until his junior year of high school. When having to move his life to another town, he probably never imagined that that would lead to him meeting a girl in seventh grade that he now calls his fiancé. He moved back to Fremont his junior year of high school, where he attended Archbishop Bergan.

“Bergan blessed me with some of the best people I have ever met in my entire life. Now, I am a part of an amazing community and team at Midland on the track team where I hope to help continue to bring success to the program.”

 Everything happens for a reason, even if you don’t know it’s happening. That’s kind of how Dylan ended up at Midland.

“I chose to come to Midland because I was given the opportunity to continue my track and field career at a school that truly cares about your success in the classroom, on the track, and also professionally.”

During his time at Midland, and as a member of the men’s track and field team, Dylan has accomplished many things. One thing he is most proud of is winning a national championship in the shot put alongside his teammate, Seth Sabata, who received national runner-up. He is also a member of the Blue Key Honor Society.

After graduation, Dylan plans to get his master’s degree in education and one day teach and coach at any school that gives him a chance. Lucky for him, the best piece of advice he has ever received was “do what you love and you will never work a day in your life.”

When he’s not in class or winning national championships, he’s probably spending time with his family and friends or jamming out to SICKO MODE by Travis Scott because “it absolutely slaps.” Oh, and he’s definitely dreaming about the day he’ll be able to have dinner with Olympic shot putters Ryan Crouser, Darrell Hill (aka Big Homie), and Joe Kovacs, just to see how much food they could all eat.

A piece of advice he would offer a freshman: I would tell freshmen to get involved and not be afraid to ask questions. Nine times out of ten someones else has the same question as you, so do not be afraid to ask that question and get the information you need to succeed.
