      Forest Beatty was a real race horse. Four decades ago he was peerless at 200 meters. A couple of years later Steve Caminiti (best known as a hurdler)and Freddie Kuller were very quick. Unfortunately for them there were a couple of other kids at the California State Meet named Hines and McCollough.

        Darly Newman of the Fresno area. Think he was the last white guy to defeat Bob Hayes.

                I think anthony Tufariello may have held the 400m record back when he was running in the late 70's....but not sure.
                I know Casey Combest holds the 60m indoor HS record, and I think Beatty tied the HS 100y dash record.
                Someone else may be able to verify all this.

                  Beaty ( let's all spell it right, please) ran 20.2 for 220 on the straight which I do believe was a new HS record.

                    Was Combest that good? And why did he not realize his potential? Injury?

                      Joe Galeno was a good sprinter, a great hurdler, and a darn good high jumper. It's too bad his screwed up his life the way he did.

                          re: Casey Combest

                          Apparently he couldn't adjust to being away from home. I think his grades weren't good enough for a major university, so he went to a Junior College in the south, and then dropped out and went home and got a job.
                          This is only a few years ago. I think he's about 22yrs. old. There was talk of a comeback last indoor season, but I am only aware of him running one race last year.
                          What a shame......

                              Re Casey Combest:

                              Here's a good article about him from last year:

                              http://www.courier-journal.com/cjsports ... 367746.htm

                              was he that good? 6.57 60m high school record which still stands (from 3/14/99).. you be the judge..

                              im not sure of his 100m PR but i know he had a FAT 10.2x in the following outdoor season, and a 10.1 hand timed. fast white boy!
