Earlier this month, Florida State wide receiver commit Marvin Bracy showed he was more than just a track star with his performance in the Under Armour All-America game (three catches for 56 yards and a TD).
But on Sunday he reminded everyone how he got the track star label by running a 6.08-second 55m at the Jimmy Carnes Youth Invitational track and field meet in Gainesville, Fla.
Bracy's time is the world's fastest time in the 55m so far this season and obliterated the previous high school record of 6.14.
When Bracy committed to the Seminoles in July he and personal coach (as well as former FSU sprinter) Ricky Argro said they hoped that Bracy would make Team USA for the 2012 Olympics later this summer in London.
He will have that chance later this summer on July 24 at the U.S. Olympic trials for in Eugene, Ore. His 10.05 100m last summer already qualified him for the trials.
Make no mistake, Bracy is a football player first and will be a great addition to the 'Noles next season, but he also has a very bright future as a track & field star.
