ebony collins?

Postby doug091463 » Mon Feb 18, 2008 5:53 pm

i thought ebony collins was going to lsu, but her name is not on the roster. she had a difficult season last year, but the 2 years before that she seemed arguably as good as any high schooler in the nation. i hope she is allright and has not given up the sport.

Our attempts to track down anybody with a clue to her whereabouts last fall when we were preparing "Where They Are Going" proved fruitless.

Umm, if anyone has any questions they can EMAIL HER THEMSELVES. That was the point. :roll:

I have questions, but I don't think folks like Collins want to hear directly from doofii fans like me via email . . .

Regardless, gh spent "last fall trying to track down anyone with a clue to her whereabouts", and it took me about .003 seconds.

T&FN has a policy of approaching teenage athletes through adult channels.

LOL all you want; in these days of stalkers and pervs we stay 100% above-board when it comes to the kids. (Actually, even if there wasn't that concern we'd be very circumspect; people below the age of consent probably shouldn't be talking to the media without adult permission anyway.)

Ebony Collins is now running for West Los Angeles community college.
She's done some relays and won the 200 a couple weeks ago in 23.64 at the California Relays

Not all that far outside her PR of 23.42 (from '05).

If you drill down in that web site, you'll find that the results of the 200m were identical to the results of that event at last year's California Relays. Same top six listed, same times for each, same wind. Something is obviously wrong.

She is well over 15. And anyway, I thought you wanted to talk to her about T&F plans, not, erm, anything else. Guess I was wrong :shock:

On these shores 15 will get you 20. The age of consent is 18.

Considering she's 19 now, that means she was 18 long before any questions about her future emerged last year.

Age is irrelevant (I was just pointing out legalities to somebody who thought 15 was it). Our position, regardless of age, is that we are circumspect around high school students. Excuse us for taking a stance that tries to avoid putting youngsters under undue pressure.

She is at West LA college trained by none other than VBH. You should see her return to the stage by next year
