The thing is none of his runners ever reach the same success in college or beyond college as they did in highschool!
Like these kids train like professionals when they are in highschool and when they get to college I've heard they actually are let down with their programs and don't care anymore. I know personally with running I like to think I'm progressing with training and didn't reach my peak when I was 17.
Why does everyone think this program is good for kids? Also his semi-pro team has never produced anyone good, and he usually just injures his athletes because of over-training. There is no balance with him and that only works with super talented athletes.
Maybe the kids are let down in college because they are no longer apart of this thing that is bigger then themselves.
He is teaching them how to work hard and to be excellent. I'm sure those kids that are a part of the team are the ones who love it. The ones who don't want to put forth the effort are the ones that complain about it being to militaristic and like boot camp.
Also I am going to bet that he is a low rate of injury. He has a small team and he can focus on that group. They lift weights. He turns these kids into athletes.
