Nothing gets the blood going for fans like the sprint events in track & field, and there are faces old and new to follow for Stanford in the upcoming 2007 outdoor season. On the women's side, some top athletes return, though the Cardinal lost a record holder to a hometown transfer. On the men's side, it is a slew of promising freshmen, including two from the football team.

Stanford got the job done on defense in the 2005 class, but there is a clear need to address a number of offensive skill positions in 2006. The Cardinal would like to find some "home run" speed for their backfield, and a top candidate is Nebraska's <b>Ryan Fisicaro</b>. The 6'2" tailback from Creighton Prep in Omaha has championship track speed - and a GPA to match.

Creighton Prep in Omaha, Neb. is home to running back Ryan Fisicaro. The 6-2, 210-pound running back has the size and speed that college coaches covet. Irish Eyes spoke with Fisicaro on Sunday night to get his thoughts on recruiting. Are the Irish involved with Fisicaro?

If you are a division 1-A prospect in the state of Nebraska, it doesn't take long to get noticed. Well, Ryan Fisicaro's best forty time in the 'fastest man' competition in last year's summer camps put his name out there a lot sooner. He's definitely going to be one of the players to watch for 2006 if you are trying to keep track of the best inside of Nebraska.

As the last year has come and gone, the name Ryan Fisicaro has become synonymous with one thing: speed. The sizeable but fast Creighton Prep standout has gone from a summer camp where he bested all those for three sessions in the forty and does so as well on the track. Fisicaro is taking that speed to San Antonio next week as he will be one of over 400 other athletes facing off in the annual U.S. Army All-American Junior Combine.
