    Transfer from kal. Apparently coming to join his little brother. Dad was a Trojan decathlete...clearly the McKay was a hope for a future Trojan, and there are 2.

    Hmmm, OK. When did he compete? I don't have him on my rosters.

    According to Zak Johnson's tweet, he finished up at USC 25 years ago.

    Still drawing a blank. I have no Johnson on the SC track team 20, 25, or 30 yrs ago. Did he go by a different name back then?

    Can only tell you what the Zak Johnson (McJay/Christian) @JohnsonThrows twitter site says, "25 years since my last year at USC my boys will be competing side by side. Congrats on the accomplishment. You earned it." Maybe a short-term walk-on who never got into an actual meet? Whatever, he's obviously a happy and proud father.

    The only Johnson I could find was John Henry Johnson who was one of our assistants. It could very well be as Paul says above that he may not have been on the team for the whole season. I have found a lot of track names that didn’t make it into a media guide (or even the track files).

    Just a quickie follow-up, here's a numbered list of our track rosters: USC Track Rosters (numbered)

    It's just a worksheet kinda thing, nothing pretty about it but we are looking at several thousands of names.
