Coach Brosnan has built a powerhouse program from nothing in just four years. The secret to his runners' success is not high mileage. The top boys are only running about 60 miles per week. No, his secret is keeping his runners healthy. They stretch before every workout and they do some kind of strength work. He specifically mentions that they work on their glutes. Not sure if they do barbell strength training or mainly bodyweight stuff.
In a previous interview about Nico Young, I think the coach said he missed much a cross season and an entire track season because he was hurt. Nico's younger brother (not sure which one) was hurt in the later part of this past season, not allowing him to run state. Jace Aschbrenner was hurt in the first half of their 2018 season and their number 2/3 from 2018 was injured at NXN. They have injuries just like everyone else. Also, Jordan Hassay is a terrible example of staying healthy.
