Ran a 10.66 100 meters at the McCook meet yesterday.  Also ran 22.16 in the 200 and won the long jump at 22-5.  Word is he barley scratched another long jump attempt but they measured it anyway and it was 24-4.  For comparison, Gayle Sayers held the Nebraska state long jump record for decades at 24-10 until Robert Rands broke it jumping 25-0 15 years ago.

 

That's pretty impressive for a guy going 210 pounds.

Yea, that's basically what Marcus Fleming ran.  These 100 meter times translate all over the place to the 40.  Nate Gerry ran a 10.3, but a 4.6+.  I have a kid right now that runs 10.8 & 4.4.  That almost defies logic, but fast & athletic is fast & athletic.  I will never understand why these kids w/futures in football continue to train 200+ though...

Because they are great athletes and they have more to life in high school than just a football future.

100M is important, but I have seen the 200M help show who has top end speed. We have had some burners that arent great out of the blocks but are better 200m guys (11.1 kids but 22.00 200m).  400M show

Ha ha touché, but absolutely not. The only time I've ever seen a game in Manhattan is when T-Magic ran all over them as a freshman, and I was treated terribly by K-State fan under 50. With that being

I am assuming you mean why they train to run the 200 or 400 in track? 

 

If that 's what you mean then almost all sprinters run more than just the open 100 and the 4x100 relay. These young men still want to compete and win at everything they can. Plus I'm sure their track coaches want them competing in more than just 1 or 2 events.
