Tyreek Hill Receives Big 12 Weekly Honor

Kirby Lee-US PRESSWIRE

After two record breaking performances, Tyreek Hill is the Big 12 Indoor Track & Field Male Athlete of the Week!

Early this month Tyreek Hill laid down the 18th fastest 60-meter time in the country, and set a Oklahoma State school record.

On Friday Tyreek set another record. He ran a blistering time of 6.68 seconds in the 60-meter dash at the Kansas State Open.  It's the fastest time ever recorded at the event, narrowly beating the previous record of 6.69 seconds held by Terence Newman. History has a habit of repeating itself, and Cowboy Nation is crossing their fingers it does again. Newman went on to be a two-time NFL Pro Bowler.

When you set records in back to back weeks good things tend to happen. Today Hill was recognized as the Big 12 Indoor Track & Field Male Athlete of the Week. He's the first Cowboy to receive a weekly honor this season.

Tyreek isn't the only guy on the football team spending some time on the track. Blake Webb (SO), Tre Flowers (FR), and Jerel Morrow (FR) also dedicate themselves to both sports.

"Obviously their commitments are first in football, but they love track and field too." said Head Coach Dave Smith during his press conference. "For some of those guys that are just so gifted as athletes, like Tyreek Hill, it doesn't take a lot of time on the track to be great"

I get the feeling there are many more Tyreek Hill broke a record, or won an award articles to come.  Go Pokes!
