Tyrese Van Horne was the fastest freshmen in the 400 last year. His 47.95 was No. 5 among all grades in the event. 

When I was young and could run everyday without soreness I used to scroll through other not-to-be-named websites for results of my competitors. I wanted to know how much faster my competition was, and where I stood among them. Granted, the first few years of high school there was a lot of scrolling down the page, counting out the many names of people faster than me. To this day, not much as changed, only now I'm scrolling and compiling lists so Colorado's up-and-comers can see where they stand among their peers. 

Side note: In my early years I wouldn't have found my name on any of these lists - I was buried very far down the lists, well beyond the "Top 10" - so to all the athletes out there who don't find their name here, don't fret - there's time to close the gaps.

Below are of the top-10 freshmen - now sophomore - boys in every event from 2017, or the way I like to look at it, these are likely future Colorado state champions. While most of them were buried somewhere in the middle of the totem pole that is Colorado's hierarchy of the state's best, these are the names to keep an eye on this outdoor season, and in years to come.
