“Dick Booth, who is the head coach and jumps coach down there [Alabama], and has had many national championships, national championship jumpers over the years,” said Rogers track head coach Jim Yurwitz. “Brandon is in good hands going down there and is definitely going to improve.”
Athletes will agree there is always room for improvement but with Workman that may seem hard because he broke the conference triple jump record last week and it’s already better than the state record.
His track skills are a byproduct of his football career.
“I definitely think football and track help each other, it’s a mutual relationship, one helps the other,” said senior Brandon Workman. “Football in the weight room has been the biggest thing for me. I’ve really gotten a lot stronger over the past year and I really think that has helped with both my long and triple and then we had a lot better season in football and you just get that confidence about you and I think that helps.
