If you drop nearly 90 seconds off of your 5K time between your freshman and sophomore season, people are going to notice you a whole lot more. That could be even more the case this year if Chase Osborne shows us anything close to what we are used to seeing.
Even between XC and outdoor track the improvements kept coming and that is why Chase is making a big leap on our list all the way up to the number 10 slot for our returner rankings.
Chase will enter this XC season with his 15:59 best run at the state meet and an impressive 9:28 3200 behind Ahmed Hassan in the 6A State Championships. He will also return tied amongst now juniors for the 6A underclassman lead.
Whether he wins the state title this year or down the road one thing is for certain, Chase deserves to be on this list and could be a major dark horse heading into this season.
