All-Pro Track & Field’s 10 Fastest College Football Impact Players 2018
Speed Kills!!! This statement has been true since the beginning of time, and in no other sport is it more prevalent than College Football. For us here at All-Pro we tried to dissect on-the field speed, and track speed to compile the list below of our fastest College Football Players for the 2018 season.
10. Devin Duvernay WR (Texas)- His numbers were down from his 2016 stats of 20 receptions 412 receiving yards ,and 3 touchdowns (80 yard Long), but he still has the elite track speed to take the top off the defense. The fact is when you have a weapon like this on your roster, you will find a way to use it. We expect to see big plays from him in 2018.
9. Jalen Reagor WR (TCU)- The High School track star made an immediate impact for the Horn Frogs as a True Freshman last season by leading the team in receiving yards(576) & touchdowns(8). Reagor, had a season long 93 yard touchdown reception in the Alamo Bowl against Stanford that displayed his track speed to the World. Watch for more explosive plays this season.
8. Travis Etienne RB (Clemson)- He was a complete burner last season as a true freshman for the ACC Champion Clemson Tigers. Etienne, led the team in rushing with 107 carries, 766 yards, and 13 touchdowns.
7. Tony Brooks-James RB (Oregon)- With Head Coach Mark Cristobal taking over as Head Coach we know that the running game will be a crown jewel for the Oregon Ducks this season. When you have a speedster like Tony Brooks-James in the backfield it will make everything else in the offense open up. The Senior from Gainesville, Florida will see a increased work load with Royce Freeman off to the Denver Broncos. Last season, the burner totaled 93 carries, 498 rushing yards, and 2 touchdowns.
6. Tavien Feaster RB(Clemson)- It’s hard to catch him from behind, as he turns on the Jets. The Junior running back from ran a season best 6.88 60 meter dash at the Tiger Paw Invitational. The burner racked up 107 carries for 699 rushing yards, and touchdowns last season.
5. Lorenzo Lingard RB (University of Miami)- He has yet to see the field for the Hurricanes, but the 5 Star recruit from Orange County, Florida will be explosive from day one. He was apart of the Miami Hurricane track & field team this past spring where he earned First Team All-ACC honors on the member of the men’s 4×100 relay team.
4. Kendall Sheffield DB(Ohio State)- He ran a personal best 6.63 in the 60 meter dash last season for the Buckeyes track program, and also took home the silver medal in the event at the Indoor Big Ten Championships. He has great closing speed for the position and his world class athletisim is why Wide outs cannot separate from him.
3. Marquise “Hollywood” Brown WR(Oklahoma)- The 5’10 168 pound Junior from Hollywood, Florida has the fast twitch muscles to make you look completely silly in the open field. Last season he had 57 Receptions 1095 Receiving yards to go along with 7 touchdowns.
2. Kwadarrius Smith WR(Akron)- Legit track speed that translates to the football field, that’s what an NFL scout told us. Smith, has personal best of 10.42 in the 100 meter dash, and 21.46 in the 200 meter dash for the Akron Zips Track & Field program. He clocked a wind aided 10.29 at the Mid American Conference Championships to win the Silver medal this past spring.
1. Anthony Schwartz WR (Auburn)- He hasn’t touched the field yet, but we feel very confident saying that he will be the fastest collegiate football player in the nation this season. Schwartz, was named the Gatorade National High School Track & Field Athlete of the year this past season. He set personal bests of 10.09 in the 100 meter dash, and 20.05 in the 200 meter dash. He is also the Boy’s Under 18 World Record Holder in the 100 meter dash with a time of 10.15. Football is his first love, so he will be dedicated to making the Auburn Tigers better this season.
