Aldrich Bailey of Timberview (Arlington, Texas) hit historically fast times in his first indoor races of 2012 and is brimming with confidence about where his talent might take him.

Bailey ran 20.99 for 200 meters (No. 2 all-time indoors) and 47.05 for 400 meters (No. 6) in the first two weeks of January. “I saw it coming because of the way I’ve been coming through workouts,” he said. “I was hitting 21s (for 200 meters) in practice without blocks. And I knew my 400 would be good.”

In most years, Bailey would be the talk of the boys sprinting world, if not all of track and field. But as the calendar heads toward mid-February, the biggest names in the Boys Sprints and Hurdles category are undoubtedly Boone (Orlando, Fla.) senior Marvin Bracy and Christopher Columbus (Bronx, N.Y.) senior Strymar Livingston. After he ran a legal 10.28 and wind-aided times of 10.05 and 10.09 last summer, Bracy opened up in late January with a 6.08 55-meter USR. He has talked openly about trying to make the Olympic team and the 100 USR set in 2008 by Jeff Demps is clearly in his sight.

Meanwhile, Livingston has been the long sprint headliner of the past month, setting USRs in both the 500 and 600.

Bailey also has big goals, though, and the records he’s chasing in his specialties are two of the most long-standing and legendary in the sport.

“Hopefully I’ll be the first quarter-miler (in 30 years) to break 45 (seconds),” he said. Back in 1982, Darrell Robinson set the prep record of 44.69. He remains the only sub-45 high schooler in history.

Bailey would also like to take down at least one of Texas’ all-time state records, which would be another Herculean task. The U.S. high school record in the 200 is 20.13, set by Roy Martin of Roosevelt (Dallas, Texas) in 1985. The state’s all-time record in the 400 is 45.36, established by Marlon Ramsey of West Brook (Beaumont, Texas) in 1994.

As a junior, Bailey demonstrated impressive range and willingness to run everything from 100 meters (10.92) to 800 (1:58.28). But the 200 and 400 are where he shines the most. Bailey ran US#5 46.53 at his region meet, 46.76 at 5A state, and was 3rd at New Balance Outdoor Nationals at 46.87 as St. Thomas Aquinas (Ft. Launderdale, Fla.) junior Arman Hall won.

But the World Youth Trials just over a week later were Bailey’s time to shine. With stars like Hall and New Balance Indoor 200 champ Ronald Darby in the races, Bailey swept the 400 (46.57) and 200 (PR 21.09) and was the story of the meet.

With a nagging groin injury, however, the rest of the summer didn’t quite go as he’d have liked. He was picked to run the 200 at the World Youth Champs (while Hall won the 400), and was 6th. He won the 400 at USATF JOs, tying his PR at 46.53, but then was 4th in the 200.

Bailey has started 2012 on a new level, though.

“I’m a little kid trying to run grown-man times,” he said. “Like Kirani James, when he ran 46 at 14 (years old).”

Like precocious James, the reigning world champion from Grenada, Bailey has big ambitions.

He’d like to help his teammates at Timberview by doing all he can to win the state championship. The bigger mission, personally, includes taking a shot at making the Olympic Trials field and/or qualifying for the World Junior Championships.

“If I stay healthy, I think I may have a shot at the Olympic Trials,” he said.

Bailey, who has signed with Texas A&M, also plans to run for nationals titles at the New Balance Indoor Nationals where he was fourth (400) and ninth (200) last year.

MORE TO WATCH

MARVIN BRACY, Boone (Orlando, Fla.) 2012
Bracy’s aforementioned 6.08 55 is the only race he has run this winter … he was undefeated in 2011, including huge victories in the Adidas Dream 100 in New York and the U.S. Juniors … when he ran 10.05 at Juniors, the wind was just a slightly illegal 2.2 mps. … the 10.09 came in late July, as he won the Pan Am Juniors title. … after a stellar football season, the Florida State signee made a highlight catch during the Under Armour All-America game. … one of Bracy’s most impressive feats of 2011 may have been at Adidas, when he ran 10.47 into a 3.0 headwind. … his PR in the 200 is 21.24.

STRYMAR LIVINGSTON, Christopher Columbus (Bronx, N.Y.) 2012
Although he has only run 47.78 in the 400, it’s impossible to overlook the fact that Livingston has broken both the indoor USRs at 500 and 600 in the past month, running 1:01.68 and 1:17.58. So he’s either got much better PRs coming in the 400, or perhaps he’s poised to make a big breakthrough in the 800, where he ran 1:52.47 last year. … He was fourth at the NY Federation meet last spring in the 800. … The 500 record was all the more impressive because it came against Glass, who turned in the No. 2 time in history and was almost half a second back.

ARMAN HALL, St. Thomas Aquinas (Ft. Lauderdale, Fla.) 2012
Hall is the reigning World Youth Champs gold medalist in the 400 and ran 46.01 in the finals, which held up as US#1 for 2011 … add his PR of 20.82 in the 200 meters and it is easy to see why he might be poised to be the best track athlete in the nation as a senior. … he was second to Bracy in the Florida 4A 200 meters last year and their potential rematch this spring could be a blockbuster. … Hall is also the reigning NBON champ (46.23) and won the inaugural Brooks PR Invite (47.45) indoors.

ARTIE BURNS, Northwestern (Miami, Fla.) 2013
Burns, still only a junior, is the nation’s top returning 110-meter hurdler and also one of the 300- and 400-meter hurdlers in the nation. … his PR of 13.63 in the 110 hurdles, set in the Florida 4A finals, broke the national sophomore class record by .02 seconds. … he was also part of a 4x400 relay team that ran 3:10.69, also a US#1 for 2011. … Burns ran 36.60 in the 300 meters at the Golden West Invitational in California, placing second to senior Jonathan Cabral.

LEVONTE WHITFIELD, Jones (Orlando, Fla.) 2013
That’s right, one extended family from Orlando, Florida might have the two fastest 100-meter sprinters in the country this spring … right behind Bracy is his cousin Levonte Whitfield, a junior who placed fourth at the Adidas Dream 100 and third at NBON … His biggest highlight came at the Golden South Classic, where he ran a dazzling 10.31 seconds. … He also has a best of 21.35 in the 200.

RONALD DARBY, Potomac (Oxon Hill, Md.) 2012
Darby, who has not raced this winter, is ranked as the nation’s #2 cornerback and will join Bracy at Florida State … he broke out on the track as a soph, producing a one-day double of 10.55/21.24 at the USATF JOs. … in 2011, Darby won the NBIN 200 in US#1 21.24 … He also competed for the U.S. at the World Youth Champs, taking bronze in the 200 at 21.08 … He was also fourth in the 100 (10.61). …At New Balance Outdoors, he was fourth in the 100 after posting the meet’s fastest time in the prelims (10.41) and also placed fifth in the 200. … He.

KAVAHRA HOLMES, Breaux Bridge (Breaux Bridge, La.) 2012
This LSU football signee (WR/CB) and state 400 meters champion in Louisiana could be a factor in national championship races this spring. … He ran 46.07 to win the AAU Junior Olympics last August in New Orleans, good for US#2 in 2011. … Three months earlier, Holmes ran 46.31 to win the Louisiana 4A meet. … He was also part of two state championship relays to help power Breaux Bridge to the team title.

NAJEE GLASS, St. Peter’s Prep (Jersey City, N.J.) 2012
Glass was consistently in the mid-46s last year outdoors, with a PR 46.43 to win the New Jersey Meet of Champs, 46.55 for 2nd at NBON (behind Hall, ahead of Bailey), and 46.67 for 2nd at the World Youth Trials (behind Bailey, ahead of Hall). … He finished second at NBIN by .01 seconds. … He represented the U.S. at the World Youth Champs but did not advance to the final (won by Hall). … So far in 2012, Glass has set new PRs in the 200 (21.48) and 500 (1:02.16). His 500 time is the second-fastest in history.

ERIC FUTCH, Penn Wood (Lansdowne, Pa.) 2012
The versatile Futch is a combo sprinter/hurdler who can impact a track meet many different ways … He ran a US#1 400-meters time of 51.67 last year and already this winter he has turned in a US#1 flat 300 time of 33.56. … He won the 300-meter hurdles at the Pennsylvania state meet last spring, clocking US#3 36.43. … At the Delco Championships, Futch ran 21.32 in the 200, 14.24 in the 110 hurdles, 37.47 in the 300 hurdles, and 10.98 in the 100.
