Harvey Glance
Claim to fame: Sprinter, I came across him while researching Houston McTear.
He was expected to win the 100 meter dash at the North Florida Relays in 1975 when Mctear edged him out by .2 seconds, but amazingly, the top 3 in that race finished in under 10 seconds.

Glance went on to a scholarship at Auburn University where he had an illustrious career as an 11 time All-American and went on to win the gold as part of the 4x100 relay at the Montreal Olympics (along with John Jones, Millard Johnson and Steve Riddick)

He did not get a chance to compete in the 1980 Moscow Olympics when the USA boycotted the games.
