    That's exactly what I thought, killer fast. Give him a scholly for the track team now (although being JP's kid, would he even have to pay tuition at ISU?)

    He'd have to pay (unless of course on scholarship).

    But that time puts him in contention for the 2A distance title next year as a freshman, especially considering I think the 2A defending champ returns in the 3,200 and he'd be training with him. The 1,500 time isn't earth shattering but he'll only get faster as he matures. 2A was ridiculously weak this year so I wouldn't be shocked to see that trend continue next year.
