10.06s – NFL Pace is Olympic Pace

Ron BrownCapture

Ron Brown won the gold medal at the 1984 Games in Los Angeles as the second leg runner of the 4×100-meter relay team brough home by Carl Lewis. He also took fourth in the 100-meter competition. Brown had a productive NFL career with the Los Angeles Rams (1984-1991). He also spent one season with the Raiders in 1990. Brown was selected to the Pro Bowl in 1985 because of his proficiency as a kick returner.

A personal best of 10.06 records him as the first of our NFL players in the Genuine Pace race, but is the fastest ever?
