Athlete: Tommy Brady
Year: Class of 2019
School: Maine South High School
Analysis: During the 2017 cross country season Tommy Brady was only a few seconds behind some of the top seniors in the country. Brady finished third at the IHSA Cross Country State Championship in Class 3A. He was behind Clayton Mendez who placed second running 14:22.00 and Danny Kilrea who won running 14:08.00.
He didn't make it to any of the national meets last fall after finishing 19th at the Nike Cross Nationals Midwest Regional and 27th at the Foot Locker Midwest Regional. Watch for him to make the jump and be in the national conversation this year.
