    Sanya Richards to appear on BET Madd Sports
    Longhorns Track and Field All-American to be featured as part of the “Generation Next” segment on Madd Sports to air Saturday, Dec. 20, at 11 a.m. (CST) on BET

    AUSTIN, Texas – University of Texas women’s track and field sophomore All-American Sanya Richards (Pembroke Pines, Fla./St. Thomas Aquinas) is scheduled to appear on Black Entertainment Television’s (BET) Madd Sports show this Saturday, Dec. 20, at 11 a.m. (CST). Madd Sports is an hour-long, cutting-edge sports program which airs Saturdays on BET and highlights athletes from both the collegiate and professional ranks.

    Richards, who earned Big 12 Indoor and Outdoor Performer and Freshman of the Year honors last season, will be featured in the segment entitled “Generation Next,” which profiles up-and-coming athletes in their respective sport. The show also will star Denver Broncos running back Clinton Portis.

    The BET film crew came to UT’s campus in November and spent the day with Richards, her sister Shari, a freshman sprinter on the Longhorns track team, and the Texas track and field athletes and coaches. Madd Sports has featured UT athletes in the past such as Royal Ivey, James Thomas and Roy Williams.
