I think I just learned why Herschel was so fast. Only took me 40 years to find out.
UGA S&C coach Scott Sinclair is on Twitter. He just posted a link to a site/company that teaches athletes how to sprint properly. Interesting stuff. This is in the description on the front page of the site describing a picture of a track guy running improperly "..he reaches too far with his front foot and actually hits the ground with his front shin completely vertical. Thus, he creates a braking mechanism for himself ...". Herschel had those short powerful step therefore his shins were always in a better position to make him accelerate. Fascinating. Here's a link to the site. Some interesting reading. https://simplifaster.com/articles/speed-development-for-non-track-athletes/
