RE: Cool Michael Van Voorhis article
Did he even train in high school? I know he ran around 9:40 but he must have done that on a year or two of 25 mile weeks.

The fact that he had the cojones to go the head coach and ask to walk on the team means he was already willing to work hard and never be a problem. But Mick was right to test him by running for the club team first.

Real talent is hard to judge. Obviously Michael is a rare case.

I recall years back when Dellinger was coaching at Oregon and a 9:15 runners would be to let to walk on but none of them ever panned out.
