EUGENE, Ore. -- Possible new slogan for the U.S. Olympic track team: Higher, Faster, Younger.There could be a youth movement underway on the track over the next two weeks.A group of up-and-comers are angling for spots on Americas Olympic track team, hoping to duplicate the success a new crop of swimmers is making at that sports trials in Omaha, Nebraska.The year of the youth, said 17-year-old sprinter Candace Hill, a dark horse possibility to make the U.S. squad for the Rio Olympics in the 100 meters, 200 meters or perhaps even both. I feel like, since older people are leaving the sport, theyre passing the torch to the younger folks. We have to step up our game and show were ready to take over in a way.Hill is already the worlds fastest girl ever, courtesy of a number of youth records she set last season, including in the 200, which she ran in 22.43 seconds.A year ago, she ran 10.98 seconds in the 100 -- the first time a female under 18 had gone below 11 seconds. That kind of time wouldve earned her a share of the silver medal at the 2008 Beijing Olympics and placed her seventh at the 2012 London Games.Someday, she could be going for the label of fastest female in history. That honor belongs to the late Florence Griffith-Joyner, who holds both the 100 (10.49) and 200 (21.34) world marks.Hill could be pushed by another teenager, Kaylin Whitney.My goal is to be one of the greatest female sprinters ever, said Hill, who turned pro last December and signed a 10-year deal with ASICS.Hills role model is Allyson Felix, the six-time Olympic medalist who Hill used to watch as a kid.I feel very old, lamented the 30-year-old Felix, who will try to make the team in the 200 and 400. But its a neat thing, because I remember when I was in that exact same place.Upon arriving at the airport, Hill became star struck after running into sprinter Tori Bowie, along with 400-meter runners Natasha Hastings and Francena McCorory.Im like, `Thats actually them, Hill said. You see them on TV and in videos, but then theyre right there.Last week, Hill won the 100 at the USA junior championships. Shes not the least bit tired, either.The benefits of being so youthful.The drawbacks are simple: Experience. Age does have some benefits.I just want to get out there and see what I can do, Hill said. Its time for the youth to rise and take over the sport of track and field.Here are some rising track and field athletes to keep an eye on at the trials:FOLLOWING JIM RYUNS FOOTSTEPS: Donavan Brazier of Texas A&M recently broke a record of Jim Ryuns that stood for five decades. The 19-year-old Brazier won the 800-meter title at NCAA championships in a time of 1 minute, 43.55 seconds, a new collegiate and American junior record. Brazier recently announced he was going pro after a sensational freshman year with the Aggies.FOLLOWING JESSE OWENS LEAD: Hows this for some elite company: Arkansas senior Jarrion Lawson became the first man since Jesse Owens in 1936 to win the 100, 200 and long jump at the same NCAA championships. He was nominated for an ESPY award in the best male athlete category and is up against the likes of Alabama tailback Derrick Henry and Oklahoma hoops star Buddy Hield.RECORD BREAKER: Teenager Sydney McLaughlin heads into trials fresh off winning the 400-meter hurdles title at the USA Track and Field junior championships last weekend. The week before, the 16-year-old from Dunellen, New Jersey, broke national high school records at New Balance Nationals. McLaughlin eclipsed the prep record set by Leslie Maxie in 1984 with her time of 54.46 seconds.TRIPLE SCOOP: 20-year-old triple jumper Keturah Orji recently captured her second straight NCAA title for the University of Georgia. Orji, of Mount Olive, New Jersey, broke the collegiate mark this season. As it stands right now, shes one of only two triple jumpers at trials to have the Olympic qualifying standard.BRIGHT FUTURE: Shamier Little definitely stands out in the 400-meter hurdles by wearing a neon bow in her hair. Its a way for her mom to easily find her. Heres another way to spot her: Shes usually the one that crosses the finish line first. The 21-year-old Texas A&M junior recently won her third NCAA title. Youth Sharks Jerseys . With his new coach and six-time Grand Slam singles champion Boris Becker watching him during an official match for the first time, Djokovic appeared tentative early against the Slovakian player, who often appeared content to keep the ball in play. Brent Burns Jersey . Scott won the Australian PGA last week in his first event in Australia since winning the U.S. Masters in April. American Matt Kuchar, ahead by two strokes with four to play and even with Scott with one to go, double-bogeyed the 18th after taking two shots to get out of a bunker. http://www.cheapsharksjerseyschina.com/dylan-demelo-jersey/ .ca looks back at the stories and moments that made the year memorable. Joonas Donskoi Jersey . Pence singled in the winning run with no outs in the ninth inning to give the Giants a 7-6 victory over the San Diego Padres on Sunday. Jannik Hansen Jersey . The Dane followed up his first European Tour title last weekend with eight birdies and just a single dropped shot on Thursday for a one-stroke advantage over South Africas Allan Versfeld and Portugals Ricardo Santos.

Robinson CanoTeams New York Yankees (2005-13), Seattle Mariners (14-present)Honors Seven-time All-Star (2006, 10-14, 16), two Gold Gloves (10, 12), five Silver Sluggers (06, 10-13)Championships 1 -- New York (2009)Career stats* .308/.356/.497, OPS -- .854, Hits -- 2,129, HRs -- 260, RBIs -- 1,041*Stats through July 10, 2016The playerCano has eight .300 seasons and a ninth possibly on the way, has a good chance to top 3,000 career hits and probably will pass Jeff Kent for most home runs by a second baseman. In the field, hes smooth and effortless with a strong arm. Hes top 10 at the position, headed to top five, and leaving the Yankees shouldnt affect his ultimate legacy as one of the best at the position.?-- David Schoenfield, ESPN.com senior writerCano can do it all: He hits for both average and power, tied with Rogers Hornsby among second basemen for the most seasons (five) with at least a .300 batting average and 25 home runs. Whats more, he played in at least 150 games at the position in eight consecutive years, something only five second basemen have ever done, and in seven of those he had positive defensive WAR. -- Tristan Cockcroft, ESPN.com senior writer9. Charlie GehringerTeams Detroit Tigers (1924-42)Honors Six-time All-Star (1933-38),?MVP (37), Hall of Fame (49)Championships 1 -- Detroit (1935)Career stats .320/.404/.480, OPS -- .884, Hits -- 2,839, HRs -- 184, RBIs -- 1,427The playerThey called him The Mechanical Man, a tribute to his consistency. He was the AL second baseman in the first six All-Star Games, when he was already in his 30s. A modern-day comparison? How about Robinson Cano? A player with no weakness in his game. -- Schoenfield8. Ryne SandbergTeams Philadelphia Phillies (1981), Chicago Cubs (82-94, 96-97)Honors Nine Gold Gloves (83-91),?MVP (1984), 10-time All-Star (84-93), seven Silver Sluggers (84-85, 88-92), Hall of Fame (05)Championships NoneCareer stats .285/.344/.452, OPS -- .795, Hits -- 2,386, HRs -- 282, RBIs -- 1,061The playerBeloved Cubbiness and a brief run as one of the most supremely gifted second basemen in the game aside, Sandbergs main asset is exploiting Wrigley Field to hit for power, slugging .491 there vs. a less-than-epic .412 everywhere else. Add in the questions about his defense, and youve got a guy that, yes, Id include toward the bottom of this list, but only after guys like Chase Utley and Robbie Cano, never mind rating him with Alomar or Morgan.?-- Christina Kahrl, ESPN.com MLB writer7. Eddie CollinsTeams Philadelphia As (1906-14, 27-30), Chicago White Sox (15-26)Honors MVP (1914), Hall of Fame (39)Championships 4 -- Philadelphia (1910-11, 13), Chicago (17)Career stats .333/.424/.429, OPS -- .853, Hits -- 3,315, HRs -- 47, RBIs -- 1,300, Sacrifice Hits -- 512 (all-time leader)The playerA great player in the first two decades of the 20th century, Collins hit for a high average, stole bases, drew walks and would have won Gold Gloves if theyd had them back then. He was also a great World Series performer, winning four titles and hitting .328 in 34 career games. Would his game translate to 2016? I think so, maybe similar in style to Ichiro Suzuki, except playing a different position.?-- Schoenfield6. Roberto AlomarTeams San Diego Padres (1988-90), Toronto Blue Jays (91-95), Baltimore Orioles (96-98), Cleveland Indians (99-2001), New York Mets (02-03), Chicago White Sox (03-04), Arizona Diamondbacks (04)Honors NL All Star (90), 11-time AL All-Star (91-2001),?10 AL Gold Gloves (91-96, 98-01), four AL Silver Sluggers (92, 96, 99-00), All-Star MVP (98), Hall of Fame (11)Championships 2 -- Toronto (1992-93)Career stats .300/.371/.443, OPS -- .814, Hits -- 2,724, HRs -- 210, RBIs -- 1,134The playerIt took Pat Gillick about only three hours -- not even enough time to write up a press release -- to trade for Alomar, who became the cornerstone of the Blue Jays back-to-back World Series champs in 1992-93. ?-- Scott Lauber, ESPN.com Red Sox reporterSecond basemen arent supposed to be great. The position is home to those who couldnt hack it at shortstop or slug enough to earn a corner-infield job. And then theres Roberto Alomar. Everything he did in the field was smooth, it was elegant and it was a joy to watch. He won 10 Gold Gloves while, oh by the way, hitting .300 with speed AND power. He won rings in Toronto. He played in Baltimore and New York. But its hhis time in Cleveland that I think of first, when Alomar and Omar Vizquel mastered the dance of the double play as well as any duo I have ever seen.dddddddddddd -- Dan Mullen, senior MLB editor5. Rod CarewTeams Minnesota Twins (1967-78), California Angels (79-85)Honors Rookie of the Year (1967), 18-time All Star (67-84), MVP (77), Hall of Fame (91)Championships NoneCareer stats* .328/.393/.429, OPS -- .822, Hits -- 3,053, HRs -- 92, RBIs -- 1,015The playerThe Tony Gwynn or Ichiro Suzuki of his era, Carew was a master of bat control and one of the great bunters in the games history. Much of his career came in the low-scoring 1970s, and he won seven batting titles, hit .328 lifetime and chased .400 in 1977, when he finished at .388. He moved to first base halfway through his career, but would rate higher as a second baseman.?-- Schoenfield4. Nap LajoieTeams Philadelphia Phillies (1896-1900), Philadelphia As (01-02, 15-16), Cleveland Bronchos (02), Cleveland Naps (03-14)Honors AL Triple Crown (1901), Hall of Fame (37)?Championships NoneCareer stats .338/.380/.466, OPS -- .847, Hits -- 3,243, HRs -- 82, RBIs -- 1,599The playerThe first big star of the new American League in 1901, he ranks 23rd all time in Baseball-Reference WAR. Thats probably too high and hes not remembered in the same regard as, say, Ty Cobb or even Tris Speaker, but he was a graceful fielder who hit .338 lifetime.?-- Schoenfield3. Joe MorganTeams Houston Colt .45s (1963-64), Houston Astros (1965-71, 80), Cincinnati Reds (72-79), San Francisco Giants (81-82), Philadelphia Phillies (83), Oakland As (84)Honors 10-time NL All Star (1966, 70, 72-79), All-Star MVP (72), five NL Gold Gloves (73-77), two-time NL MVP (75-76), one NL Silver Slugger (82), Hall of Fame (90)Championships 2 -- Cincinnati (1975-76)Career stats* .271/.392/.427, OPS -- .819, Hits -- 2,517, HRs -- 268, RBIs -- 1,133The playerIn 1975 and 1976, Joe Morgan towered over the National League, winning back-to-back MVP awards, with WAR totals of 10.9 and 9.6. Those were his only .300 seasons, but he had many other years he could have won an MVP award: He drew an astonishing number of walks, was one of most efficient base stealers of all time, won five Gold Gloves and had a power at a time when few second basemen did. Im taking him as the best second baseman ever.?-- SchoenfieldIf Joe Morgan played today, he would be viewed as the ultimate Sabermetric player. He had an incredible knack for getting on base and has the second-most home runs for someone his size (5-7) or shorter. Modern measures credit him with an average of 9.5 WAR per season over a five-year period. That puts him in a class with the games all-time greats. -- Mark Simon, ESPN Stats & Info2. Jackie RobinsonTeams Brooklyn Dodgers (1947-56)Honors Rookie of the Year (1947), MVP (49), six-time All Star (49-54), Hall of Fame (62)Championships 1 -- Brooklyn (1955)Career stats .311/.409/.474, OPS -- .883, Hits - 1,518, HRs -- 137, RBIs - 734The playerHeres the thing about Robinson: His legacy as one of the most important individuals in U.S. cultural history has obscured that he was an amazing player. He didnt reach the majors until he was 28, but hit .311/.409/.474 and was one of the most exciting players ever with his daring dashes on the bases. He played 10 seasons; give him another seven or eight and hed be right up there with Rogers Hornsby and Joe Morgan. ?-- SchoenfieldHe won the inaugural Rookie of the Year award in 1947. He won an MVP in 1949. He helped lead the Dodgers (the Brooklyn version) to the boroughs only World Series title. And he did most of it under the most trying of circumstances. He has been mythologized, but if anything, he was exceptionally -- and an exceptional -- human. Theres a reason no one in baseball can wear No. 42. It might be the only number as big as the game itself. -- Rob Peterson, ESPN.com senior MLB editor1. Rogers HornsbyTeams St. Louis Cardinals (1915-26, 33), New York Giants (27), Boston Braves (28); Chicago Cubs (29-32), St. Louis Browns (33-37)Honors Two NL Triple Crowns (1922, 25), two-time NL MVP (25, 29), Hall of Fame (42)Championships 1 -- St. Louis Cardinals (1926)Career stats .358/.434/.577, OPS -- 1.010, Hits -- 2,930, HRs -- 301, RBIs -- 1,584The playerHis hitting stats are undeniable, even coming in a high-scoring era. He hit .400 three times, including .424 in 1924, and .358 lifetime. He had power (career high 42 home runs) and his defensive metrics are better than his reputation, although in this case maybe you want to refer to the eyewitness accounts. That said: I dont buy the consensus that hes the best second baseman ever. The Cardinals, Giants and Braves all got rid of him in a three-year span. Why??-- SchoenfieldRogers Hornsby batted .424 in 1924. During 1921-25, a five-year period, he hit .402. -- Tim Kurkjian, ESPN senior writer ' ' '
