    Yes some mentioned above weren't great footballers regardless of the speed. Then there were some who were all pros. Then there's guys like Houston McTear who avgeraged over 14 yards a carry at Baker High who left football in high school.


    paste...

    Last season McTear, who is 5'8" and 160 pounds, started at running back for Baker. Working out of a Wishbone, he gained 1,380 yards in 96 carries. That is a 14.4-yard average. He scored 16 touchdowns, four of them on passes. Hendrix likes to say that every time the Gators shook McTear loose, he was gone for a touchdown. "His running aside," says Allen Trammell, an assistant coach at Florida, " McTear showed me exceptional hands and a lot of durability. He's sure welcome at Florida, and I think if he came here he'd do well enough to attract the pros." Trammell coaches defensive backs. "If ever I had to prepare my guys for a nine-flat sprinter, I wouldn't sleep for five nights," he says. "He'd get double coverage even if he never caught a pass."

    The question is not whether McTear can play major-college football, but whether he will play. Will Willoughby doubts it. Willoughby is McTear's track coach and primary influence. It was his persuasion that made McTear drop football, an unpopular decision at Baker.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    So if we look at running backs who could/did run a sub 10.15 sometime in their athlectic career, that would be...

    McTear
    Demps
    Holliday
    Dickey
    Bob Hayes who was a running back in college.

        100 M

        Yep- Garrison played in the early 70's, when Plunkett was at Stanford (he was on the Clarence Davis/Tody Smith "Wild Bunch" teams). I take it from the best (conf. champ) hurdle times of the others that they were pretty swift w/o the barriers. Was tempted to name Ollie Matson too.

                Let's see ..hmm...the fastest white footballers?

                John Roderick...SMU/9.3
                John Riggins....Kansas/9.6? (I'm guessing he was a lot lighter in high school when he ran that)
                Tim Dwight....Iowa/10.33w
                Sonny Randle....9.7
                Don Hutson....Alabama/9.8
                Billy Cannon....LSU/9.7
                Jerry Tarr....Oregon/13.3
                Richmond Flowers....Tenn/9.4
                Hugh McElhenny....Washington/9.7?

                Then there's...

                Roger Carr
                Don Beebe
                Travis Jervey
                Wes Welker

                ....who were obviously fast but I have no 100 times for them.

                  Did he ever break a 10.40? He was one of those like a Reggie Bush who ran far faster on a football field than he did a track. Yes I know, he was a Cali State champ in the 100m.

                    And how did we forget one of the greatest hurdlers ever, one Renaldo Nehemiah. He averaged nearly 18 yards per catch in his three years with Niners and has a Super Bowl ring to show for his efforts.

                      I hear ya, my bad! He's been added. It's just that his NFL carreer pales in comparision to the other "great" hurdlers like Woodson and Gault. I can't have a Jerry Tarr however and not have Nehemiah.

                          Ray Renfro and Del Shofner were very fast in college. Boyd Dowler ran some decent hurdle times in school- espec. for a big man.

                          Back to the hurdles topic- there was J.C. Caroline at Illinois. Art Monk at Syracuse. Q'adry Ismail. Gene Washington at Mich. State. NFL rosters have been rife w/ hurdlers.

                              If you saw him at Texas Tech you might change your mind. He had a lot of long speedy runs.
