I was thinking about what the best colleges would be for a sprinter to go to in order to achieve the greatest increases in their performances. So I did a little research and here's what I came up with:
University of Houston – With a coach of World Record status it would be tough to say no if recruited by this school, not only that Leroy Burrell has the stats to impress. He has done some impressive things with mediocre talent. Stanford Routt went from 21.05 last year to third place at outdoor NCAA's and a new PB of 20.51 this year, Robert Foster went from 10.67 in 2000 to 10.32 in 01 to 10.18w this yr, Fred Day 10.66 hs to 10.47 in 01 and 10.34 in 02 and 03(w) and a 39.28 relay.
Texas Christian University – Coach Monte Stratton, the list speaks for itself! Raymond Stewart, Percival Spencer, Kim Collins, Jon Drummond, Michael Frater, Lindel Frater, Donovan Powell, Roscoe Tatum, Darvis Patton, Tony Allen, Bryan Howard(all have run very low 10's/20's and some sub-10) and collegiate record 38.04 Bryan Howard, Jarmiene Holloway, Syan Williams, Percy Spencer. Definitely check out the History and Records link.
University of Arkansas – Coach Lance Brauman in his 1st year, from Barton County Comm Coll where he accumulated an incredible list of accollades and developed talents such as Bernard Williams. ALL SPRINTERS/HURDLERS WHO RAN THROUGHOUT THIS PAST YEAR SET PB'S(MANY IN MULTIPLE EVENTS!)!!!
These are the 3 schools that I think are the best for a sprinter to go to to improve upon PB's. Please feel free to add schools that u think should be on this list, but make sure you back it up with stats and feel free to diagree with my choices. 🙂
