Josh lowered his prelim time and beat out his brother in the BE finals for 4th....
--- both terrific times for guys playing football.
George's 10.36 was actually wind aided, but just barely. Josh's may also have been wind aided.
In any event, these guys are getting to the point of being serious college sprinters. Notre Dame's listed school record is 10.32 by Rocket Ismail, although this was done in a quadrangular meet, not a major competition.
I hope Brian Kelly is taking note. As fast as George is, and as good a runner as he showed he is in the spring game, and with his kickoff returns, it was unfortunate he got to play so little last fall. He has all the potential to be a game breaking athlete.
I agree about Rocket's time...
--- but it wasn't electronic...so I would suggest a basic equivalence amongst the three.
I believe George will ultimately assume the #2 RB role next year...if not #1...
--- we can't afford to play without him...Riddick simply isn't equivalent.
No use whining about it anymore,
--- but Darby just ran a 10.50 wind aided on May 5th and backed it up with a 21.17 200M...with another chance at the state meet.
He will have to run under 10.43 (at least) to make the Top 10 high school nationally.
In comparison, George never ran under 10.59 in the 100M and 21.30 in the 200M (both coming when he was a soph in HS; didn't really compete much as a senior)
BTW, Oregon De'Anthony Thomas, one of the fastest 200 Meter runners in high school 2 years ago and who appeared to be one of the fastest college football players on the gridiron last fall (2 carries for 153 yards in the Rose Bowl, 18 touchdowns last season as a freshman), opened his college track career last weekend with a 10.65 3rd place finish in the Oregon Twilight Meet. One of the guys in from of him was Marcus Wheaton, a wide receiver from Oregon State. But Thomas didn't compete indoors, and had almost no track training outdoors, so we'll probably see him run much faster.
But don't doubt that George and Josh are very fast football players.
I disagree with your comment about Riddick. I think you will see him excell this year as both a RB and hybrid slot receiver! Especially if Golson is the QB and they run the QB option read plays. Doesn't mean I don't think GAIII will do well also....
I basically agree with you...if we see Golsen...
--- but Riddick never really excelled in his switch to the slot with Tommy throwing...just the facts.
Every once in a while Riddick does something well, but in general I agree that he doesn't really excel.
