I would not stay with your current job nor would I let the new employer know about the counteroffer.

If you tell the new job about the counter o...

Let's set some things straight.

| LSU Recruiting Board|| re: Trey Quinn 10.4 100 meter - tigercross on 3/27/14 at 2:44 pm|
Quinn's 10.64 is converted from a 10.4 hand time. Any hand timing at the high school level is suspect. His fastest FAT mark is 10.83, no other marks under 11.00, handtimed or otherwise. Two other guys in Quinn's 10.83 race broke 11.00 that day. Neither ever broke 11.00 again, which makes me believe ...

Theoretically, the 2nd leg of a 4x1 can carry the baton for the greatest distance if exchanges are optimized. This is a fairly common practice in high school where the best guy on a relay may be significantly better than the 4th best g...

Photo from the meet. This was right before he embarrassed the field on the second leg of the 4x100m relay. He ain't suspect.
