What a great group of young people, and fine representatives of Ohio State.  And, all Columbus kids (basically).  It still blows me away that Jesse Owens had the school record for 80 years.

My aim, then, is to whip the Weasels, to humble their pride, to follow them to their inmost recesses, and make them fear and dread us. Fear is the beginning of wisdom.   - William Tecumseh Sherman (with apologies)

I remember seeing the school record in a program at an indoor meet when I attended OSU, and was astonished that J.C. Owens still held it.  

Owens was the original Buckeye Burner.

Congrats to Mr. Gray in surpassing it.

Our honor defend, so we'll fight to the end !

Congrats to all.

But if I had just broken Jesse Owens' record, I would hang up the cleats too. Leave while you're on top.
