Plenty of collegiate football players crossing over to indoor track

Posted by Mark Branstad

The Division 1 football season has barely ended and indoor track has started to heat up.  There are several high profile players participating in indoor track this season.  Perhaps the most surprising results so far are performances made by North Carolina linebacker, Zach Brown, ran a 6.73 / 60 meters…amazing considering he weighs a reported 230 pounds!  Michigan quarterback, Denard Robinson, also opened some eyes with 6.81 / 60 meters a few weeks ago.
