As we mentioned in this space earlier this week, Boise State WR Titus Young intends to run a 4.2 40-time at the NFL combine next month. Now we understand why he believes it’s possible.
Young is training at Elite in Calabasas, California in preparation for the NFL Combine drills with a very well known U.S. Olympic sprinter.
“I’m training with Maurice Greene, a world class sprinter,” said Young. “I’ve got a lot of goals for the Combine coming up here in February and I feel like I can reach them.”
Young believes Greene has already helped him with his running technique and feels his assistance will help him shave time off his personal best of 4.35.
“Just with his coaching and his experience with his techniques I feel like he can cut my time down in the 40,” said Young. “So I’m very grateful to be able to train with him.”
When asked how much time can be cut off his best 40 time Young believes the sky is the limit.
“I don’t know how much he can help, but I believe he can help a lot,” said Young. “Hopefully we can cut off a lot of it, hopefully a whole tenth of a second. I’ve run a 4.35 for a fastest time, but that’s without technique or anything like that. Hopefully I can run a little bit faster.”
