Burnell Burns It Up
The Hokie football team underwent testing yesterday for Max Test Height, Weight, 40 Yard Dash, NFL Shuttle Run, Vertical Jump, and 10 Yard Dash.
The big news was tailback-turned-cornerback Keith Burnell, who broke Damien Russell's 12-year-old forty yard dash record by running a 4.21. Russell ran a 4.23 in 1990, and over the next 12 years, that record withstood assaults by Hokie speed legends, including Michael Vick (4.25 in 2000), Larry Austin (4.26 in 2000), and Lee Suggs (4.27 in 2000).
Burnell's time also chopped an impressive 7 hundredths of a second off of his old personal best of 4.28.
Other notable 40 times:
Complete 40 times for the entire team are available on BeamerBall.com for BeamerBall subscribers.
Today and next week, the Hokies will be tested for weight lifting max amounts for back squat, power clean, bench press and push jerk.
Spring football practice begins in about four weeks, on Saturday, March 23rd. The Spring Game will be held on Saturday, April 20th, at 2:00 p.m. in Lane Stadium. Admission is free.
