With three athletes qualified for the World Championships, the coaches’ vision for the program is being realized. They wanted to sell the Track & Field program as a place where athletes could have successful collegiate careers and then go on to have post-collegiate careers representing their countries.
Coach Lewis created Team Perfect Method to train these athletes post graduation. Collins and fellow 2016 alumnus Issac Williams are two current members of Team Perfect Method. They are following in the footsteps of Lewis who trained at Houston all throughout his Olympic career.
“All these young recruits that come to us that want to go to the Olympics, we’re actually physically showing them the path,” Lewis said. “You can do it in school while you’re here and you can also do it post collegiately for (your country).”
