USATF Level 2 Sprint, Hurdle, and Relay Coach

I am a the head track and field coach at Bishop Alemany High School. I was a collegiate hurdler at California State University, Northridge, where I knew that eventually I would also want to be a track and field coach.  I am responsible for coaching everything from the 800 down to the 100.  I am USATF level 2 certified in sprints, hurdles, and relays. I have coached several athletes to reach pretty high speeds, and would also like to give you the tools to do the same for yourself, your athletes, or your children. Examples and progressions of kids I have trained/coached are:

Alayah Byers '15 - Track In High School Only, 12.05 (High School) - CSU Fullerton

Diab Davis '16 - 12.0/24.8 (8th grade), 10.43/21.63 (High School) - CAL

Dominic Davis '15 - 11.22/22.55 (8th grade), 10.39/21.27 (High School) - USC
