Howard Russ just completed his 11th season as men’s and women’s head coach for Beavercreek High School in Beavercreek, Ohio, a suburb of Dayton.
In 2018, Russ’s girls won their first OHSAA Division One state
championship, and Russ had his first state champion individual with junior Taylor Ewert. Ewert is a 4-time All-American including a 3rd place finish at NXN and 4th place at Footlocker in 2018. She was also the New Balance Outdoor National champion in 2000 meter steeplechase in 2018.
He talks about Timo Mostert’s 2-mile power runs, and Dan Iverson’s distinction between goals and targets. Just two of Howard’s take-home messages from these two resources.
Thanks Howard for taking the time to talk.
