Of all the regions in this poll I think the most controversy will come here. Choosing at top field athlete is the toughest choice I had to make.
The first round is on now and your chance to vote for the top boy field event athlete over the past decade is here. I chose four boys to represent the top field event athlete of the decade. The ranking is arbitrary so the number one does not mean Daniel Pepper was my top pick. The voting will start at noon today central time and will end at noon on June 20th. You can vote multiple times but the platform may stop counting your votes if you vote repeatedly over a short period of time. You will eventually be able to vote again.
What Is This?
Over the next few weeks, Milesplit Mississippi will be rolling out brackets broken down region which are grouped by discipline. Fans can vote for who they think is the top athlete in each matchup. In the end, we will be crowning the top track and field athlete in the state of Mississippi as selected by the fans. This poll is for the best boys distance runner from the past decade.
We've selected 4 boys and placed them in a bracket of head-to-head matchups where your poll votes on the next two pages will determine who advances.
