Blog: WR Davis using track speed again in track

You probably already know that Georgia wide receiver Reggie Davis is fast.

Remember this?

Davis, from Tallahassee, Fla., is using that speed on the track now for Georgia.

The rising sophomore in football but still a freshman in track debuted with the Bulldogs Friday at the Drake Relays in Des Moines, Iowa, running the 100 meters in 10.75 seconds. That ranked 18th out of 24 in the preliminary heats. Georgia senior Johnathan Smith was third at 10.37 and qualified for the finals.

Davis, the only football player currently on the track team, finished fifth in the Florida state 3A 100-meter dash with a time of 10.43 seconds.

“His speed is in a different class than really everybody else on the team,” quarterback Hutson Mason said last summer.

Running backs Todd Gurley and Keith Marshall dipped their toes in the water for the indoor track team last year at a meet at Virginia Tech. Marshall pulled a hamstring running the 60 meters. Receiver Justin Scott-Wesley was part of Georgia’s 4X100 meter relay team that finished 17th in the NCAA preliminaries last year and was eighth in the 100 finals at the Drake Relays. Defensive end Ray Drew has also thrown the discus at Georgia.
