    Great video Will! I loved the close up slo mo replay of Barfield and Sam Foltz coming to the finish. Barfield looks like an incredible athlete. He really has it going on. Now I see why you liked him so much.

    Do you think he is capable breaking Hulett’s record? I think he can at least run a low 47

    By the way, who is the guy that announces the track meet? Man he is good! He makes you want to go out there and run too.

      DB Fan: Don’t know the names of the PA announcers but I agree “they are very good—excellent!”
      Can Barfield break Lukas Hulett’s record: Hmm, man, to run under 47 in high school takes some serious focus? He and his coaches will have to start now to formulate a strategy and training program to do it—summer track would be a start. He certainly has the physical capabilities to accomplish it—he demonstrates great flexibility and body control under pressure and fatigue. He should at least get into the 47s next year.
      Cody Rush has the ability too. He is very fluid but he will need to tighten up on his form. Sam Foltz needs more work on his upper body flexibility—too tight. I like Levi Gipson too.
      All three champions and Foltz are capable of 47s. If Kenzo Cotton decides to enter the fray, 2012 could be a remarkable year in the 400m. Can you imagine having 4 or 5 boys in the same year running sub-48s.
      Garrett Teel could get there too. Grigsby needs a lot of sprint work at meets: 100, 200 400 relay. That’s what all the other guys have over him.
