    Ryun was a "rock star" of the era.

      Wow, just realized that the Bring Back the Mile guy is Ryan Lamppa. I saw him set a Minnesota HS record at 440 yards (I think it was yards). I'm not sure that the record lasted until the end of the day. He was small school, which ran first. I think the large school race that followed may have pipped him by a tenth. All manual timing in those days. But that was long ago, so my memory is fuzzy.
