At the 2002 Illinois State Cross Country Championships, Cobrin placed seventh in 14:46, leading Stevenson HS to second place.

Gregory Garza (throws), from Indio, CA/Indio High School, is regarded as an excellent throws prospect. A CIF qualifier in the discus, Garza won the discus invitational at the 2003 Mt.

A multi-sport athlete in high school, Johnson also lettered in football, but will concentrate on track and field at UCLA.
