Guys that can actually run a 4.50 accurately timed 40 yard sprint are not easily found. Guys that weigh over 200 pounds that can run a true accurately timed 4.50 are even fewer and farther between. We've had this discussion in other threads but running a 40 in an accurately timed 4.50 is blazing fast. Many high schools don't have one that can do it.
Are these times especially for HS players on
I know a lot of HS track/football players get timed in 40's on high speed surface tracks with their spikes. A little different from pads on grass.with cleats.
In HS, I ran the 40 with 3 different people doing hand timing with the wind at my back. One said I ran it at 4.89, the others said 5.04 and 5.05. The HS coach took the best time and rounded down so he would say I ran a 4.8
We've not spoken to his dad since school started and really not heard much from camp. He's a quiet kid, keeps things to himself so you're not going to get much out of him anyway. Sounds like they are going to use him just like they told him, all over the field. If he's in the gameplan then he's going to shock South Carolina and cause some matchup problems as they'll have to choose a LB or big DB to try and stay with him. I still think that he's going to be our most used and most productive Fr, unless Bailey finds his way onto the field early.
