The Ira S. Wilson Award is presented to the male student-athlete who has had the most outstanding athletic career. Berube is arguably the most outstanding distance runner in a long line of All-Americans, SUNYAC Champions and Ira S. Wilson Award winners to have run at Geneseo. A nine-time All-American in cross country, indoor and outdoor track and field, he has twice been a runner-up at the NCAA Division III championships; in cross country in 2011 and in the indoor 5,000 meters in 2010. A member of the SUNYAC Cross Country Hall of Fame, he won the SUNYAC Cross Country meet three times, the Atlantic Region Cross Country meet twice and was the Atlantic Region Cross Country Runner of the Year in 2010 and 2011 on his way to All-America honors both seasons. On the track, he holds two SUNYAC records and four school records, earning All-America four times on the indoor track and once outdoors. He finished fourth in the 5,000 meters and fifth in the 10,000 meters at the 2012 NCAA outdoor championships and won the 5,000 meters on Saturday, May 5 at the SUNYAC championships, setting a meet record time. Lastly, on May 23, he received the heralded Rochester Press Radio Club/Paychex Local College Male Athlete of the Year award. The biology major with a 3.22 grade point average heads to Upstate Medical School's College of Health Professions in the fall to specialize in physical therapy, with designs on combining his studies with the training necessary to earn a trip to the 2016 Olympic trials in the 10K or perhaps, the marathon.
