Five from football busy with USF track meet
Just two days after USF football opens spring practice, five Bulls players will pull double-duty this weekend, running with USF's outdoor track team on campus at the Bulls Invitational.
Three sprinters -- receivers Lindsey Lamar and Derrick Hopkins and cornerback Kayvon Webster -- will run in the 100 meters and together on USF's 4-by-100-meter relay, along with sprinter Kevin Bell. Receiver Chris Dunkley will also run in the 100 meters, with all four football players logging a seed time of 10.70 seconds or better -- Lamar leads the way at 10.43 seconds, with Lamar at 10.45, Webster at 10.50 and Dunkley at 10.70.
That's not all -- Hopkins, Lamar and Dunkley will run in the 200 meters as well, and redshirt freshman cornerback Kenneth Durden will compete for the Bulls in the triple jump, an event in which he won two state titles in high school in Georgia.
Lamar and Webster went 1-2 in the Big East indoor championships in the 60 meters last month, while Hopkins won the 60 and 200 indoor Big East titles in 2011. Here's the full story on the track meet from USF's official site.
