MileSplit TN Athlete's Corner Ep. 8: Harrison Williams

Harrison Williams: 

Initially, I didn't plan on airing a new episode this week as I wanted to give coaches and athletes space to focus on their upcoming events for state next however earlier this week, we highlighted the 300m hurdles state record performance of Memphis University School's Harrison Williams from 2014. He noticed the video on Instagram and we opened a short dialogue culminating in the following interview. Hope you enjoy. 

Harrison is just one example of Tennessee natives going on to accomplish incredible things at the next level in track and field and he's not done yet. Follow his future competition on Instagram @yungharri and join me in sending him your best wishes as he goes into Olympic qualifying in the coming months.
