Tell Us Your Greatest Moment Story...
I have been around Texas track for a lot of years. I have seen so much in my lifetime. I guess the greatest moment I have witnessed was back in 1990 at the Texas Relays. I was a senior in high school and it was my first time at the Texas Relays. It was in the University 4x200 relay. Anchor leg, Baylor was in 3rd place and was about 15 meters back, it looked like a lot more with the stagger. Anyway, Michael Johnson got the stick and when I say he rolled up the anchor, he did exactly that. It looked like someone pushed a fast forward button and he was the only one affected by it. TCU's anchor leg got caught before they got to the straight. Then he proceeded to put distance on them. When it was all said and done, the announcer yelled out..."18.5 split for Baylor's anchor". It looked like an 18.5. The fastest split I have ever witnessed with my eyes. Still the greatest moment I have seen.
State track meets my 5th-8th grade years were unbelievable. Jeremy Wariner, Kelly Willie, Kerron Clement, DeBryan Blanton, Brendan Christian, Edorian McCullough...watching those guys run in Austin are some of the best memories of my childhood.
