Jim Leavitt’s 40-Yard Dash

It looks like a diet consisting of candy bars and Mountain Dew is now becoming the new breakfast of champions. South Florida coach Jim Leavitt was challenged by the sports information department to run an official 40-yard dash yesterday, which is part of a promotion for the USF spring football game. The 52-year-old Leavitt clocked in at a pretty impressive 5.72 seconds. Students will participate in a mock combine before the spring game and will receive a free t-shirt if they can beat Leavitt’s time. The coach claims to have been around a 4.7 during his playing days at Missouri. Lace ’em up, Bo. And you might want to get about 20,000 t-shirts ready for print.
