Is this kid good enough to try and make a run on the roads like his brother? Unbelievable to think he was a Footlocker Champion. Funny that he never had expectations like others have.
Looking at recent champs:
Solomon Haile: DNR
Amazing these guys don't do more. Thinking back... AJ didn't do much (in cross). Kenny Comier didn't do much if anything. Withrow was a bust (I know he ran some good races, but in aggregate, a bust). Is it the 10k distance that gets kids?
You have to go back 9 years ago to get someone who was a Footlocker Champ who did something of note in college (Solinsky, 3rd in 2005).
