In the story written by Dave Devine and Steve Underwood, Dathan Ritzenhein of Rockford High School was not only named to the team, but he was honored as the Athlete of the Decade.

Deservedly so, according to the authors.

It was written that while Ritzenhein’s first national cross country title came in 1999, it was his performances in 2000 and beyond that “cemented this honor for him.” These top-notch performances included large margin of victories against two of the other decade’s legends — Alan Webb and Ryan Hall — and put him beyond the others.
