  • Is 4.44 normal for 16 year olds?

    Today for football we ran our 40's, and this one kid ran a 4.44 for. We were on the track, and we have a fast track, in the direction of the wind (it was a slight breeze, nothing much though) and the sophomore who ran the 40 was wearing track shoes, but damn. 4.44 for a 16 year old is crazy. Also, he squats about 370 I think it was. To top that off, this kid is about 5'8"-5'9" and only weighs like 170. That is crazy...

      I have a kid that I played football with this year, he's about 6'0" 230 lbs, runs about a 4.45, and bench max is well over 300. He's a junior.

        Yeah, that's not too out of the ordinary at all. At least when I was in high school around here.
        The whole world loves neophyte athletic tight end Jimmy Graham from Miami with the 95th pick. "Best pick in the draft,'' one AFC coach told me. "Give him time, and in that offense, he'll be better than [Jeremy] Shockey by the start of next year.''

          It's ordinary for fast kids. It's nothing to sneeze at for sure, but it's not absolutely insane.

            Obviously if a kid runs a 4.4 he is very fast but it's not unheard of. 4.4-4.6 times are common for top high school recruits.

                Well, I forgot to mention he is on kreotine... but even so, it amazes me someone so small (he isnt big at all) can run a 40 that fast and squat so much.

                      is being able to bench 600, run a 4.35 40 and do 50 pull ups normal for a 16 year old?

                        i have short little legs.
                        i think i run the 100 in 18 seconds? something ridiculously sucky.
                        sure i might run fast for my stride, but, when you're...
                        yeah.

                          remember that guy on this board who thought hes faster than Reggie bush? He was about 15 and ran with basketball shoes on concrete at night. He compared his video to Reggie's and said if he was officially timed..it would be 4.38-4.40

                            You can't put much stock into high school coaches timing. Especially hand timed on a track with a breeze at his back.

                              You can't attribute that to Creatine. Creatine aids muscle recovery time and allows you to get more reps and last longer, for things such as all out sprints like the 40, Creatine has a marginal effect.
