    Danny Harris...Cleaned Up And Doing Well...

    I can't believe it has been that long since Danny Harris was at Iowa State! 20+ years! I came across this article while perusing the LA Times. Short read but a feel good for sure! Here is wishing that Danny continues to follow the road he is currently taking! Good for him!

    Re: Danny Harris...Cleaned Up And Doing Well...

    That is great news about Danny. The last I had ever heard of him was that he had rehabed but fallen back into drug use more than once. I hope he can stay clean and have a good life. He was a very friendly and engaging guy when he was here as an undergrad.

    That 400 meter hurdles race in 1984 is one of my favorite memories of any olympics.
    I wonder how good of a football player he would have ended up being. He came on a FB scholarship and then concentrated solely on track.

    It seemed as though in the 80s ISU always seemed to have at least one stud runner in the track program...mens and womens. I remember the day that Danny beat Edwin Moses...that was as huge a story as track and field could provide these days...it wasn't that Danny wasn't great...it was that Moses was that tough!

    Yeah, in my mind that has to be one of the greatest winning streaks of all time. Especially in the hurdles where things can go wrong. Of course, Cael may have topped it!!!

    Speaking of track. I noticed on the schedule that the Big12 cross country championships are in Ames this year.

    A pic I took of Danny when he was honored at half time of the first night game in Cyclone Stadium (Homecoming against OU):

    I cheer for two teams, Iowa State and whoever is playing the hawkeyes.
