The issue of who is Georgia Tech’s fastest player has apparently been settled.
In a sprint competition touted on Twitter by Tech players, A-back Broderick Snoddy bested quarterback Justin Thomas Wednesday afternoon in a matchup of former state 100-meter track champions.
Snoddy, who redshirted last fall as a true freshman, and Thomas raced in what appears to be a 40-yard dash at the Brock Football Practice Facility. In a video posted on Facebook, Snoddy and Thomas took their stances with teammates lining the field on either side. Snoddy steadily separated from Thomas, looking back at him as he passed the finish line.
A Tweet from quarterback Vad Lee said it all: “I know one thing. Broderick Snoddy is the fastest man I have seen with my own two eyes!!!!”
Snoddy won the Georgia Class AAA 100- and 200-meter championships as a junior, winning in 10.69 and 21.46 seconds. Thomas, who arrived at Tech last week with the incoming freshman class, won the Alabama Class 4A-6A this spring in 10.79 seconds.
