The LP high school grad is in the olympics. Is anyone following him? He's in the finals for the mens 400 hurdles.

Who's got the love for the local boy made good?

I wonder why his name hasn't already been mentioned here? Do you know what time the race will be aired?

I went to school with Kerron. While I wasn't close with him, I remember seeing him in the hallways and he always had a big bright smile and was very polite. We would watch videos on LPTV and he was at different competitions and would just blow the other runners away right out of the gate. I imagine when we have our 10 year reunion he will be really popular. Seriously, who has done well enough that they can out-brag competing in the olympics and having a contract with Nike?

Kerron ranks right up there as the most successful athlete from LaPorte.

Heard he placed 8th and his American teammate 2nd. He is an incredible soul. In other news, Marlen Esparza, from Pasadena High Schools, won her boxing match today and goes to the finals in the first year of women's boxing.

I watched the finals tonight and realized he is still suffering from some physical problems but this does not take away from what a fine example he has been to LaPorte.

Exactly. He just had an operation in February. He is very humble.
