    Mr. B,
    You and Ed Grant (NJ) get the prize for most home state pride. I salute you.

      Yes, there is plenty of home state pride (obviously nothing to compare to Ed however). But, I also wanted to highlight the mid-summer/off-season performances of an NAIA All-American in Cross and Track in 2002-03 (Newell), an NCAA All American at 1500 (McGowan), a 4-time all american at NCAA in xc, indoor and outdoor (Weese), a 2-time Trials Qualifier (Hunt), and a 3-time qualifier (including the 2004 marathon trials)(Aragon), and a current Pan-Am Games competitor (and maybe Worlds is he can coax a few more feet out of a throw) in the hammer (Parker).

      Not a bad line-up for any all-comers type meet in the middle of July.
