    I'll guess Bob Hayes for Ribault in Jax.

    By the way, all the athletes in Quiz 1 and all those named so far in Quiz 2 have been Olympians. But that's not a requirement for inclusion in these two quizzes.

    So not only do we have to know that an Olympic athlete went to one of the named high schools, we also have to be mind readers? :-)
    Sorry, I'll correct the instructions to read "most" prominent athlete.

    Larry James is correct for 4 points.

    Charlie Mays is not the answer we're looking for.

    1 point for Beatty.

    Ryun is wrong
    You haven't identified which Lincoln (and 'might be" doesn't cut it)
    Barberton COULD BE Davis? You can't hedge on these things!

    FINAL answer?

    Name the single most prominent T&F athlete from each of these high schools.

    Same rules as before, no research. I'll give clues if things bog down.

    Point scoring: 1 for the first person identified correctly, down to 20 for the last one. (If the first person gets five correct identifications that will be 15 points, still not enough to overcome the person who correctly gets the last of these 20 people.)

    Quiz #2

    DONE:
    1. Central HS (Charlotte, NC)--Jim Beatty
    2. San Benito HS (TX)--Bobby Morrow
    3. Marshfield HS (Coos Bay, OR)--Steve Prefontaine
    4. White Plains HS (NY)--Larry James
    5. Barberton HS (OH)--Glenn Davis
    6. Clarksville HS (TN)--Wilma Rudolph
    7. Lincoln HS (San Jose, CA)--Don Bowden
    8. Peninsula (Gig Harbor, WA)--Doris Brown
    9. Ribault HS (Jacksonville, FL)--Chandra Cheeseborough
    10. Tilden Tech HS (Chicago, IL)--Ralph Metcalfe
    11. Roosevelt HS (Minneapolis, MN)--Fortune Gordien
    12. Auburn HS (IN)--Don Lash
    13. Bear River HS (UT)--Jay Silvester
    14. Sikeston HS (MO)--George Woods
    15. Broad Street HS (Greenwood, MS)--Willye White
    16. Madison HS (Albany, GA)--Alice Coachman
    17. Lincoln HS (Jersey City, NJ)--Andy Stanfield
    18. Wichita HS (KS)--Jim Bausch
    19. Greenwood HS (MS)--Glenn Hardin
    20. Caldwell HS (NJ)--Tom Courtney

    SCORES: (210 points total, 57 available)
    90 tc (11,12,13,17,18,19)
    45 Bruce Kritzler (14,15,16)
    28 cullman (8,20)
    13 tandfman (4,9)
