I was just researching what's happened (on the track) with Thomas Donley, and I came across this.
It made me smile. Here's someone possibly waking up to the caste system.

Excellent post jacknyc. It's a crime how many of our guys for probably 5 decades or longer have been held down, slotted and just out right ignorred. What a talent this kid is. I actually would prefer he chose track but he could
do both on the next level. Damn is he fast. It's gonna be interesting to see where he ends up.

Drew Donley is the same as Thomas Donley. His name is Thomas Drew Donley, and he goes by Drew.
He must have changed his mind about Mississippi - he's signed to Cincinnati.

Thanks for the video of Miller. Gotta say listening to that female announcer is akin to getting a root canal with no freezing! UGHHH

at the same meet as above (Adidas Indoor Championships), Jacob Kao, a senior from Massachusetts, took third place in the 200m (21.54 running in heat 1) and made the final as the lone White athlete in the 60m. he ran a 6.88 in the prelims (and was the fourth fastest qualifier) but tightened up in the final to take seventh (6.95).

Another kid from Germany that I'm watching very closely is 16 year old Lennart Hartenberg. He has already run a p.b. of 6.75! :)
Hartenberg is the fastest under 18 sprinter in all of Europe and he hasn't even turned 17 yet. One to watch very closely!

that girl has some wheels, that's Cunliffe territory.. Hartenberg looks long and lean so lots of strength to be gained as he fills out.

Freshman Allison Ince won the Adidas national Indoor 800m in 2.09.42, quite impressive considering she had run a race a couple hours earlier. Tall, long legged and lean...future looks good for her

Gavin Schurr opens his season with a 10.50 100m into a small headwind (-0.6)!
I think we can expect a great season from Gavin.

Gavin Schurr already down to 10.36 with almost no wind (0.2)!!
That's very, very fast for a high schooler, and it's only March.
It's also the US#1 time for high schoolers.

Here is the video and it looks like another white sprinter finished in 3rd place. Not sure of his name. Gavin Schurr is on fire lighting up the track! :)

That guy who came second looked like a grownass man compared to the other boys in the race... Schurr has a very fast start

I just came across this video which shows Korbin Martino of Ohio, running the 5th fastest 400m time in the country (high school), so far this year.
He looks very smooth.
This was his first race of the season. Let's keep an eye on how he does for the rest of the year.
