I just thought I'd start a new topic on this, since the last Denard Robinson thread was so popular about where he will end up on this team. Either way, we need to get the ball in this kids hands.
Deerfield sprinter has huge day
Step aside, Joseph Byrd. The new sprint king in the state is a Michigan football signee from Deerfield Beach who is only running track to stay in shape.
Deerfield Beach's Denard Robinson got the near-perfect start he needed, motored down the straightaway and won the 100 meters in a personal-best 10.44 seconds at the BCAA Track Championships at Coral Springs on Saturday.
Robinson's personal-best eclipsed the state standard for this year set by Byrd, a junior at Ida Baker, and it is the second-fastest high school time in the nation, according to Dyestat Elite 100 rankings.
'' I was kind of disappointed in myself to run a 10.44, but I will accept that,'' Robinson said. ``Running the No. 2 time in the nation is pretty good. I was trying to run a 10.3, but there was strong wind. I'm working harder on it and expect to hit a 10.3 by states.''
