    I was at the 1958 Penn Relays ( as a 15 year old) and saw Delany run a 3rd leg, quarter mile, on a mile relay. But I do not rmember where Villanova finished.

    I have no specific memory or knowledge, but I am inclined to think that Ron Delany had a few good ones.

    Sorry for the typos. I meant to say "....describing the relay legs of each team...."

    Agree. That's one my favorites. Plus that video has the great booming voice
    of the great Penn Relays announcer Jack O'Reilly who describing the relays leg of each time. I've watched that many, many times.

    Has anybody ever compiled a woo-index list? I'm guessing Larry James '68 still rates near the top. And Nehemiah from what, '78?
