cabada, jacob fernandez, manzano, german fernandez, torres brothers, plus this new guy diego estrada.
Yes, but it's Jocob Hernandez, not Jacob Fernandez. Don't forget about the Mercados in Oregon.
Salazar is a Portuguese surname.

Really? Who gives a shit? As far as I know most if not all of them run for America.
So are black people not black if they are born in the United States? Are you gonna get on their case for calling themselves black instead of American? Perhaps you feel race is not and has never been an issue?
And since they're born in the US, aren't they Americans? Why do they have to be re-classified? Looks like they were born and raised here, so that would make them more American than say, Latinos, right? I mean, Latinos are people who are born and raised in Latin America, and that's not the case.
Don't let the door hit you...

Hahaahaaaa. That's funny. Greatest of all time. He has to do more than run a couple of fast indoor miles to be the greatest of all time. And since those miles were run on nice, large, 200 meter synthetic tracks in comparison to the old 11 and 12 lap wooden tracks, it's tough to compare some of the old marks. I'd say give him a few years before making any statements about being the best ever. But the post was funny, that's for sure.
Dang Latinos have always been a little over the top and way ahead in running. But Fernandez, come on this kid is not of this earth. This Latino is THE GREATEST kid of all time. USA of course. He is a athlete all around also. All I can say is GOD BLESS HIM AND WATCH OVER HIM!
