Solinski is awesome, but I was hearing about him over a year ago and he has had as much hype as any high school distance runner since Webb. I really enjoy getting to read about these kids (probably because high school was the last time I was even remotely competitive in running times).
These guys are great. I just get to hear more about Magness because he posts his log and posts on this board. Also, I live in Houston and there is at least a little press here (very little really).
I think Magness and Solinski are both running the outdoor c/s mile along with many many other very talanted runners. Should be a great race. Eric Stanley will also be running and he got second to Magness in the District meet where Magness broke out (4:01+ 1600 meeters - Stanley 4:03+ I think). Stanley is a junior with another year of high school running to go.
Oh well, enough rambling by me.
