    If George Patrick is there to defend his title this could be quite an event.

    He may be a 27-footer by THIS May.

    He also ran in the World Relay Championships two years ago as part of the American gold medal winning 4x400 team.

    I'd leave a dec until his soph year of college.
    Let him develop more first---get faster, stronger, etc.
    Get better marks---maybe high 26's in the LJ--even 27, and faster in the hurdles & 400.
    Also should wait because of the differences between a HS dec and a Collegiate/Pro dec---higher hurdles, heavier weighted implements.

    NCAA team titles are also of high import to everyday journalists. Team titles have a far greater chance of getting a school some love with the general media than do individual achievements.

    Amen! To the athletes, coaches and supporters of the schools, the NCAA team title is the holy grail of the sport on the collegiate level, not the decathlon title, or any other event title for that matter.
    There's LOTS of money at stake there - coaches contracts and athletes' scholarships. The NCAA Championships are much more important than many countries' National Championhips, and certainly have better marks across the board.
