Well, I'm still a bit new around here, but I'll add what I can to the Solon side of the discussion, and Bob Weiser can obviously chime in with far greater perspective.
Noah Rahman - seems the obvious starting point. Noah was part of two top ten finishes at HSNCT - T8/64 in '04 and 4/96 in '05 - and was the #2 scorer at both of those tournaments. His team also won the inaugural NAQT State title, as well as an Indiana State title! (Bob has told me that story, but I forget most of it. I think Noah was simply dying to go out and play NAQT). The other thing that Bob has told me is that from a leadership standpoint, Noah transformed the program. Not only was he an excellent player, but he wanted to improve and wanted the program to become a force, through things like running tournaments and going to camp.
Rohin Devanathan - It's pretty easy to learn how to be a quizbowl coach when you have Rohin Devanathan and John Xiang as juniors ready to explode. Rohin has more than double the next closest Solon player in terms of both NAQT points and powers. Over 21000 points and over 1000 powers for NAQT - those marks will stand for awhile at our school. Rohin was also very coachable, and it seemed like whenever I mentioned an area to the team that I thought we should improve in, a month or two later it was Rohin who had taken up that burden. Rohin also competed on two state championship teams in one day last April. He completed two events at OSU for Science Olympiad, then rushed over to join NAQT states mid 2nd round, and solo-ed our way back into the tournament after a first round bus-crash forfeit. In fact, we invented a game late last year called "Bus Crash." Rohin would spot the rest of the room x number of questions on a packet, and then try to come back and win solo. Sadistically, I made him spot them 12 questions one time, and he nearly tied it. Every other time, he came back and won.
John Xiang - That next closest Solon player after Rohin in NAQT stats? John Xiang. John was a deadly lit. player, and could also score reams of points on his own. (http://www.hsquizbowl.org/db/tournaments/3357/stats/varsity_all_games/individuals/
#1 scorer at a tournament in California that he played solo while at UC Berkeley on a college visit!) John's definitely the most analytical-minded player I've seen so far, and he and Rohin made quite the imposing pair, not to mention making each other better. (I know we're not considering college accomplishments, but the two of them just won a DII ICT championship - I just want to give them props for it here!) John really introduced me to the kind of kid that eats, sleeps, breathes quizbowl, and really pushed me to try to get up to speed my first couple of years. The two of them together won OAC and NAQT championships, a top ten HSNCT finish, and two top 16 NSC finishes.
For the last spot, it would probably be someone I wasn't around for. Ajay Pillai must have done a lot with OAC, because he doesn't seem to have accrued too many NAQT stats.
Jasper Lee seems the best choice. Top-20 HSNCT finish and OAC championship both in 2010. Nishanth Uli, who is slightly ahead of Jasper in scoring and powers, seems to have exploded the year after Jasper, but Jasper seems to have anchored them on a better overall team the year before.
It's fun to think about this, but even more exciting to think about how the current crop of kids across the state is going to continue to make their marks!
