    >mmmm - did you Bay Area guys forget Dave Masters? ... if it weren't a guy named Mel Gray.<<

    Mel Gray? Now there's a guy who's obviously neither Black nor White.

      If they got a really good sun tan, would they go faster? Just wondering what the laws were in the People's Republic of Track and Field News...

          At the moment, quality of his dancing is the least of his problems.

                Dont forget Chip Rish, he won the California state 400 meters two years in a row-46.82 junior year and 45.7 his senior year which was the state record for quite some time. He raced against the great Henry Thomas of Hawthorne practically on a weekly basis. He is also still a member of the Jr World record holder 4/400 meter relay team that he contributed to with his 45.4 leg. He went to ASU and finished 4th in the Pac-10 45.83. The late Gabriel Tiacoh of the Ivory Coast placed first. Rish then went on to the NCAA's and lost his shoe in the first 200 meters of his 400 meter heat. After his freshman year he kind of filtered out and never really lived up to his full potential. I think he just burned out but he still holds the Orange County record for the 400 meters and his 21.01 was the record till a few years ago when another white sprinter by the name of Matt Bruno beat it with his 20.82, a time he's yet to match at UCLA. Rish's High School pr for the 100 meters was 10.40 but he was more of a 400 meter man. Jeremy Wariner reminds me alot of Rish but Wariner possibly seems to possess a few more gears.

                    Maybe Im late, but the guy who runs leg on Baylors 4x 400 meter relay team is the real deal and I pray that he makes the Olympic this year.

                      I also forget to mention Larry Questad 1968 Olympic 200 meter finalist. ( Im not gonna qote this, but Im' almost positive he played WR for the Houston Oilers, cause I clearly remember them having a white receiver who ran circles around the Cleveland Browns).

                          Nobody's mentioned Anthony Tufariello...didn't he set some sort of 400 or 440 HS record in the late 70's?

                                If some one posted a question like "Who are the best black HS sprinters of recent times?", wouldn't he be instantly attacked as a racist? Just wondering...
