LSU's receiver Xavier Carter may have unofficially ended his college football career today.
The rising sophomore simply won two individual NCAA outdoor track titles, recording a surprising 10.09 in the 100 meters and a 44.53 victory in the 400 meters. The races were just 31 minutes apart. He also ran a leg on the Tigers' winning 1,600 meter relay team and on the winning 400 meter relay team last night, giving himself four titles.
"I pretty much had a good day," he said.
According to meet officials, Carter is the first man to achieve the four-event triumph since Jesse Owens did it in 1935 and '36.
I'm under the impression he'll return to LSU's football team this fall, but many track observers have to be wondering, "why?"
Carter is considered one of the world's finest 400 meter runners, but to double in the 100 and with a time of 10.09 speaks volumes about his talents.
