Football 60 on Tap for Saturday's Twilight Meet
Tuesday, May 4, 4:45 p.m. PDT (UPDATED 7:00 p.m.)

No word yet on whether or not Coach Kelly will be on hand to ceremonially announce “Gentlemen, tie your Nikes!” but at least seven of his charges will be taking to the track at Historic Hayward Field Saturday to participate in a Football-only 60-meter dash at the Oregon Twilight meet.

Remene Alston Jr., D.J. Davis, Tyrell Irvin, Dior Mathis, Eddie Pleasant, Jide Shinaba and Brandon Williams will toe the starting line in front of the west grandstand with the prize of bragging rights for the rest of the football offseason awaiting the winner.

But wait, there’s more! UO gridiron standouts LaMichael James, Kenjon Barner and Talmadge Jackson III will all run the men's 100 meters as well as 4x100 relay. Oregon State was expected to field a team of football/track sprinters for the meet but ended up scratching its potential entrants.

The meet begins at 5 p.m. with the 4x100 tentatively scheduled for 6 p.m. The Football 60 will go off around 6:30 and the 100 will take flight at approximately 7 p.m.
