Let's start with how Brinkley ended his spring season. 

The Fort Bend Marshall standout finished fourth in the 300mH at the UIL Class 5A State Track and Field Championships in May and logged personal best efforts of 14.60 in the 110mH and 36.98 in the 300mH, respectively, across both seasons. 

He also added a fourth-place finish in the 400mH at the AAU Junior Olympic Games, clocking his fifth-straight sub-54 performance in a time of 53.48. 

All good performances. 

Now, Brinkley has a key area to improve, and that's his top end speed. 

He's entered in the 60mH and 200m over the weekend. While he's has broken 22 seconds over both the indoor and outdoor seasons, with times of 21.80 and 21.84, there's always room for growth. Brinkley likely will be eyeing up personal best times in both events. 

In the 60mH, especially, Brinkley should be yearning for all the experience he can get ahead of his collegiate run at the University of Texas in 2023. The Texan could be one of the country's elite high school hurdlers in 2022.
