"VERY Disrespected" Parris Campbell Runs 4.26 40 After Not Being Included On "Fastest CFB Players" List


Back on June 11th, NFL.com released an “18 FASTEST players” in college football list. The list included the likes of Oklahoma’s Marquise “HOLLYWOOOOOD” Brown, Bryce Brown, Oregon’s Tony Brooks-James, and Ohio State’s Kendall Sheffield. However, the list didn’t include one Ohio State player, who felt VERY disrespected by it:

Akron Journal-“It bothered me a lot,” Campbell said Friday night at the Ohio State football team’s job fair at Ohio Stadium. “I can’t even lie.”

In response, Campbell participated in a video produced by the OSU program that showcases his speed. He ran a 40-yard dash, and the handheld stopwatch read 4.26 seconds.

“The video Ohio State put out took some thought,” Campbell said. “I wasn’t sure if I wanted to do it or not at first. But I was offended. I was definitely offended.”

To take his pettiness to another level, Parris decided to hit the field and prove all the haters, of which there are many, wrong:

Parris Campbell: FAST. It is fair to mention that this wasn’t a laser timed 40, but done by hand. Not that reliable. Who cares, though? He’s faster than all of us.

I love this move by Parris and Ohio State. Programs deal with 18-23 year-olds on a daily basis. Often times, they expect them to be robots. I don’t think I’m breaking any news here, but 18-23-year-olds aren’t robots. Allow them to have a little fun, show their personality and make some #CONTENT out of it. Hell, you are making millions off of them anyways. It’s a win-win for everyone.
