Obviously a stretch but I see some similarities. Both were high school and college standouts who made US teams at age 22 (Hall 5K , Derrick 10K). Both also won US XC championships. Then they both struggled for a couple of years afterwards. Then Hall turns to the marathon and becomes one of the greatest US born marathoners we've ever seen. I've always felt that Derrick could be a great marathoner. He's still only 26 and is making his debut in Chicago this Sunday. Any chance this could be the beginning of a great marathon career?
