    Smile Banderas wins Class A hurdles

    I think some folks are going to be surprised just how good of an athlete this youngman is when he steps on campus....


    Husker football recruit Josh Banderas had himself a very good day at the state track meet in Omaha.The Lincoln Southwest standout won the Class A 110 hurdles. Impressive for anyone, but especially a 220-pound linebacker.

    14.53 in the hurdles is a great time for any kid. Being a 220 pound linebacker and having that time, very impressive.

    I weighed 220 in high school, but the only records I set as a hurdler were "most hurdles broken in a race" and "most hurdles broken in a season". I can still hear the coach cursing me and complaining that his budget didn't allow for purchasing that many new hurdles.
    In life, it's important to know when to stop arguing with people - and simply let them be wrong.

    I think being a champion high hurdler means speed, power, agility and technique. At 220 lbs, this guy has plenty of upside as a linebacker.

    Equally as impressive is Curtis Cotton's son, Kenzo. He broke state records in the 200m and nearly the 100m and he is (in the voice of Keith Jackson) "only a soph-o-more". Lets see if his football skills continue to develop.

    He appears to be a very impressive athlete... I'm glad he is "N" already.

    No mentioning of Josh throwing the bows at the track meet yet.....It was great to see, IMO. I look forward to seeing what this kid can do the new few years in Lincoln. And Kenzo is going to be a hell of an athlete when it's all said and done. Very humble kid. Hope he stays home after high school also.
    Full disclosure: I grew up in an era of Husker football when it was blasphemous for a coach to say he was "spooked" out of calling a run play. Of course, that was when hard-nosed running defined the program.

    It's difficult to establish a strong run game without firm resolve. Daily resolve. In too many instances — such as when Nebraska calls for passes on third-and-3 in four-down territory — a lack of commitment is evident.
