Today is Tyreek Hill's birthday, and he's celebrating by getting himself a couple Oklahoma State school records, and a Big 12 Championship!
Hill has broken the 60-meter dash school record for the thrid time this year. In Tyreek's first race as a Cowboy he set the record at 6.67; breaking the record set by John Teeters. In his second race, he pushed the record time to 6.65.
Less than a month later Tyreek has done it again! He broke his own record. He put down a blazing 6.64, and finished second in the 60-meter finals! Only 0.005 of a second separated him from first place. That's ridiculous speed, and the 8th fastest time in the entire country!
I can't wait to see these 60-meter runs with turf under his feet and a football in his hands.
