    Hey trackdude! Any idea how USC stands for sprinters T.J. Brock of Chaminade or Michael Norman of Vista Murrieta? These two are really studs!

    No, I sure don't, but I'm sure the coaches know who these kids are. Someone on TOS posted that Brock's mother ran track at USC. Hope that's a good omen.

    T.J. Brock fininished first in the Southern Section CIF Masters 100m in 10.50 into a slight wind. Dominic Davis (USC FB commit) finished 3rd .Both qualified for Cal Sate HS Championships. Trackdude indicated above he saw a comment on TOS that Brock's mom was a USC track alum. We both hope that bodes well for theTrojans. Norman ( 20.46) and Brock (21.26) finished 1-2 in the 200m. Again into a slight wind. Brock led Chaminade into 1st in the 4 X 100m Relay and Norman who eased up winning the individual 400m in 46.70 came back to lead Vista Murrieta into 2nd place in the 4 X 400m relay after passing several other teams that were leading Vista Murrieta going into the last leg. Would really be nice to have Davis, Brock and Norman on the Trojan track team and running the 4 X 100m relay in the NCAAs in 2017 & 2018!


    USC 2016 shot put commits Matt Katnick 70'11.5" and Nathan Bultman (62'3") finished 1-2 in the shot and both qualified for Cal State in the discus although only in 6th (Bultman) and 7th (Katnick) places. With Ponzio already on board as a freshman this year 2016 looks good for a resurgence in Trojan power in the Shot Put.

    Trackdude: You've got my curiosity up. Who is Brock's mom? At first the only woman trackster I could think about in that time period was Lennox Miller's terrific sprinter daughter Inger. But when I looked up the women's letter winners in the USC Track Media Guide I see she was a couple of years before ('91-'94) then. The closest one I could see was Tanya Smith ('92, '93, '95, & '96). So who is his mom?

    Norman tied the NFHS record in the 400 with an 45.19
    NFHS records only include races that have all high school athletes in the event.

    If I remember correctly, Edesil Garrison (Centennial High School/USC) beat out Wayne Colette and John Smith in a USC/UCLA Colosseum Track and Field Race around 1971, with a 45.6 hand time! This guy is a stud!!!!!
