In the state meet's most epic race last winter, Bishop Shanahan's Nate Alleyne and Saint Joseph's Prep's Miles Green were in a mad dash to the line. Green, who ran most of the last turn on the outside in an attempt to pass Alleyne, dove at the line hoping to take the win, but it was Alleyne who was awarded to the victory by .03.

And now after an injury derailed his chances for a 400 meter outdoor title, Green is hungry as ever to win that elusive state title. Green is a Virginia Tech signee and says he will primarily focus on the intermediate hurdles at the collegiate level, but until then, his sights are set on an indoor 400 meter crown. He went 47.56 outdoors this past spring before that hamstring injury hampered him. Now healthy, he'll be the favorite for the state crown in 2018.

Who could give Green a run this winter? Council Rock North's Michael Welde will have a shot. Welde, who signed with St. Joseph's University,  went 48.77 to take fourth overall in the event from the fourth of five sections last season. Outdoors, he took sixth in the 400 meter final in AAA. Wissahickon's Rasheed Wright is the only other medalist from indoor states back this winter. Wright went 49.07 to place fifth right behind Welde. He'll be a factor as well.


Among the other state qualifiers from last year who are back this winter include Hatboro-Horsham's Matthew Lenahan, Imhotep's Christian Brunson, Greater Latrobe's Zakharee Williams, Wyomissing Area's Austin Keim, and Canon-McMillan's Marshal White. Lenahan leads that group with his 50.50, which was good enough for tenth at indoor states. Keim was an outdoor state medalist outdoors in the open 400 meters (and also apart of Wyo's state championship 4x4).

West Mifflin's Ziggy Patterson went 50.36 on Edinboro's flat, but oversized track last season. He's another state qualifier, but he pulled up in his section of the 400 meters last winter, so he'll have a lot of motivation to come back stronger in his senior season. Grove City's Molek Walker competed sparingly indoors last year, but the senior did run 48.94 at outdoor states to take fifth in AAA last spring, so don't sleep on Walker.

Other boys to keep an eye on this winter are Saint Joseph's Prep's Robert Dupell, Hill-Freedman's Armonte Paulk (second at outdoor states in AA), Neumann Goretti's Kamil Jihad, Upper Dublin's Michael Henning, and Hickory's William Gruber (a AA state medalist outdoors in the event).

Watch the fifth and fastest section of the boys' 400 meters from the PTFCA Indoor State Championship last year, which features that duel between Green and Alleyne, and check out the top 500 returners in the boys' 400 meters below:
