    Interesting to look through the results. I wonder if Billy Hardin, LSU hurdler, was related to Slats?
    Son. One of only a few father-son U.S. track Olympian combos. Maybe the only father-son U.S. combo?

    I'm forgetting the answer to the old trivia question.
    The Ablowiches.. not both Olympians but I think the Dad was.

        As you might know he was also a footballer. He'd play defensive back for the Giants and then the Cowboys. Not much of an NFL career.
        Average length of an NFL career is about 3.5 years. He lasted 5. I think "not much of career" is a bit dismissive.

          Flowers has a 9.4 100 yard PR, so it appears he ran the 100. I have little doubts he also ran on that Vols 4x1 team. Don't know anything about him doing anything in the 100 or the relay however other than that PR......
          Ran in a World Record 4x1.

            Would you like for me to list a long list of players you've never heard of who lasted longer than 5 years? Check out Flowers stats and tell me what you see?

                            He may have been on a SHR WR team. Vols had some good hurdlers in that era...Pat Pomphrey, Bill High, Flowers. Don't think they were all in school at same time. Pat's ex Marilyn is a good friend of mine. Name droppin.

                              I wonder if Obama can pump up production at these sprint factories and use them for job creation in the manufacturing sector?

                                Not sure about that but if we had an all presidents 4x1 relay I have Obama running anchor 8-)
