Landon Young Upset in the Shot Put State Final (UPATED)

Landon Young could not hold on to win his second state title in shot put.  The future Kentucky offensive tackle was upset by Scott County’s Bryan Hudson in the final.

The Scott County freshman has been compared to Young.  The 6’4″ 260-pounder received an early offer from Mark Stoops last month.  The hope is that he’ll follow in Young’s footsteps and develop into an elite talent.  After today’s win, I’d say he’s off to a good start.

A view of one of Young’s final throws.

In other news from the world of track and field, former Wildcat Kendra Harrison broke the American record in the 100 meter hurdles, finishing with a time of 12.24.  The next time you’ll see her she’ll be running in Rio, representing the USA.

UPDATE

He didn’t get the shot put title, but he’s claiming his third straight championship in discus, falling just shy of a new state record.  Bryan Hudson finished second.

    Um, Kendra Harrison ran the fastest 100m hurdle time in American history. This is a bigger story than a football player not winning a high school track event. Priorities, folks. Remember that as the media, you not only report on things you think people will like, but you control the media folks see. It’s hard to get excited about something incredible if you bury that lead in a tangentially related story.
