Ryan Timmons Wins State in Track…AGAIN

Neal Brown has marveled at incoming freshman Ryan Timmons speed on the football field. Yesterday Timmons reinforced Brown’s beliefs by taking home the AA State Title in the 100M and 200M. Timmons successfully pulled off the 3-peat in the 100M, finishing in 11.06 seconds.

 

While re-claiming his title in 100M was important, Timmons showed his competitive nature by focusing primarily on winning the 200M, a race he fell just short of winning the year before. “I lost last year and I had something to prove. It was kind of disappointing and that’s what I’ve been working for, to show people how fast I was.” After hearing Cal recently preach and preach about toughness, you can appreciate Timmons’ competitive “headhunter” mentality that will be brought to football team in the fall.

    Those Frankfort, ky. Boys are bad a$$. A lot of good players in that small town, past and present, that don’t get much attention. Show em Ryan.

    Just for comparison purposes Derrick Locke’s personal best was 10.6 in the 100M in high school but I believe he was one of our fastest players ever. He won several track championships while in HS in Oklahoma. Don’t get me wrong I think Timmons is plenty fast and can’t wait to see him in action, I’m just giving something to compare his time to and Locke was the fastest player in recent memory I could think of.

    A nice accomplishment for Timmon to 3 peat but you writers make it seems like that’s fast. In Georgia he wouldn’t have made it to State with that time. To qualify for State your time had to be in the 10. 11 you stayed at home.

    Ryan is fast. He personal best is 10.64. He probably didn’t have anyone to push him.

    Meanwhile, Charlie Strong won the 3rd Annual Pitino Wiener contest by eating 48 hotdogs this morning. He loves the meat.

    Georgia 6A winner was 11.03. Times depend on whether they were FAT or HT plus the wind.

    Georgia Blue, no offense but you couldnt be more wrong. You just said to MAKE IT to state in Georgia you have to run a 10.11 WRONG
    Hell the NATIONAL high school record (fastest high school 100 ever ran) is 10.15 !!
    Tyson Gay (who BEAT Usane Bolt last year in a 100) is the Kentucky Record Holder at 10.46
    Ryan Timmons was hurt, and in a sling and didnt even start running track until about a month ago dude. Ryan litterally took off his sling, started running (out of shape) a month ago AND he just won ANOTHER state championship. Check your facts bro

    11 – I think he meant “To qualify for State your time had to be in the 10 … 11 you stayed at home.”

    There are 3 classes in KY HS track. Timmons won AA in 11.06. Bush of Ballard won AAA in 10.70. Quick ran 2nd in 10.86. The kid that won A ran 10.99. Timmons is fast for KY HS, but not SEC fast yet. People need to keep expectations in line.

    Ryan hurt his shoulder at camp before the season and played hurt all year, he had surgery after the season. Running in a straight line is not what makes this kid special. This is a football star not a track star. After watching Franklin Co. for the last couple of years, the blue white game was in slow motion. You folks are in for a treat.
    Ryan’s 40 time is 4.4, Quick’s is 4.7.

    In the 200 referenced above, Timmons ran 22.29 in AA. The top 2 kids in A ran 21.92 and 21.96. AAA still to come tonight, but top times will be sub-22. Again, very happy Timmons is a Cat, but be realistic about expectations.

    18 – 4.40 FAT or HT?

    I agree that we need to be realistic about his speed. Ryan’s time is above average but not blazing fast. 11 seconds wouldn’t even crack the top 8 in GA, FLA, LA, etc. and so on. Several 10.6, 10.7’s and faster.

    True, he may be recovering from injuries or simply using track as a conditioning “season” to keep sharp. More important than his straight line 100m dash speed is his ability to play football and know what he is doing on the field with the ball in his hands.

    James Quick with the 200m dash win in a time of 21.17

    Quick just won AAA 200m in 21.17. Bush of Ballard (a Jr.) was 2nd in 21.28. Top 4 all under 22. Of course, as 21 said, track speed is an indicator of skill, but if you can’t catch the ball or take a hit it matters not. Timmons has proven football skills and he will get faster (he actually was faster as a junior which is pretty common – hard to keep seniors focused on track in last weeks of high school).

    I don’t know for sure, that doesn’t mean one versus the other. What I do know is football instinct. If you put a football in his hands he very seldom gets touched. This kid is special, if you tailgate to long he will put six on the board and you’ll miss it. Just giving you a heads up. If he didn’t have S.E.C. speed Florida and more importantly Ohio State wouldn’t have wasted a scholarship offer on him. Remember Ohio State is limited because of probation, they were not going to waste one on a kid without top speed. Urban didn’t win championships by being stupid.

    Just checked. KY had 6 guys run under 11 in the state 100m finals. FL had 36. Timmons is a great HS football player – glad he is a Cat. Just wish we had 30 more homegrown speedsters to recruit.
