    It's the system. If you have a talented white CB in high school the coach will encourage them to play Safety as they believe their chances of getting recruited to college will increase as a Safety versus Cornerback. If they remain a Cornerback and happen to get recruited to College the same thing happens- Encouraged to play Safety.

    Jason Marshall is ranked as the #2 Cornerback recruit in 2021. His 100m time is 11.13 and his 200m is 22.29.

    There are plenty of white HS players that can run sub 11. The coaches will justify not playing them as CB by saying they only have "straight line speed" or some other bs. Welcome to the caste!

    Yes you have to know that a typical winning coach has to have contacts at the college level to funnel guys into programs. If you have a white tailback or corner you have to assume that if he can chew gum and walk at the same time he must know unless that player is a CMAC type he will be ignored or slotted to play in the slot or safety at the next level. Even CMAC might have been slotted to play the slot if his pops wasn't a former star NFL player who had contacts at the next level.

    Dead Castean god Massah Bowden said it to a reporter and wasn't called out for saying it, if he said that about Blacks playing qb it would have been off to the coaching glue factory and time to get the golf handicap below 20...

    DK Metcalf ran about 10.3 and got his door blow off by decent but not 100m final or even semi-final sprinters. NFL player speed for the most part is highly overrated.

    A white high school sprinter named Gavin Schurr could equal or beat that time. Metcalf is the fastest player in the nfl but that is slow compared to sprinters.

    Let's get this thread back on track. It's supposed to be about Rohan Browning. The other stuff should be in the regular track section. Yes I'm guilty of getting
    offtrack too but let's focus on Browning in this thread. Thanks guys.

    haha thanks WL. Yes, I'd seen it and dismissed it as silly - 11.46 in joggers(?) and long pants on thick grass. Myeh! I guess he was paid good money

    with the indoor season not far from a start I found the only timed 60 metres I think Browning has done. It's outside because we have no indoor tracks in the whole country but it's virtually zero wind so I'm not sure how that converts to running on the boards. He'll just have to get used to the different feedback I guess, but how I'd love to see low 6.50s or even 6.49 from him.

    Shirvo's Australian record is 6.53

    As many of you here on this board know, I predicted 3 sprinters to go sub 10 wind legal in 2022. Rohan Browning is one of them. He opened up with a 10.12 and then
    had some injuries in training. So he has only had 1 race so far this year. I do believe that is a blessing in disguise as he will be far fresher coming into the summer season
    in europe and especially for the 2022 World Championships of Track & Field in Eugene, Oregon this summer!

    This is a great breakdown from a track coach that goes over the mechanics of his 10.01 from last years Olympics. Good video for pointing out what he has done right
    and for what he still needs to work on to dip into the sub 10 category. I have no doubt it will happen in the next couple of months!

    I was pleasantly surprised to see California Performance Lab pick up on Ro-Han after that Olympic heat. Some stuff there to work on

    This is for mastermulti or anyone else that can tell me when Rohan Browning will be racing again? It's been a long time and I'm sure he is back to full health. I think
    missing the majority of the Australian Season will be a huge blessing for him. He will be fresh and ready to peak this summer for the World Championships of Track
    and Field as well as traveling to alot of European Meets to make some good money. The experience will make him a better sprinter! I'm guessing he opens up sometime
    in May like most of the bigger stars.
