An Ohio State Football Player Broke The School Record In The 60-Yard Dash

Ohio State track athletes competing.

Kendall Sheffield is spending his offseason breaking school records. The Ohio State cornerback showed out on the track tonight.

The Buckeyes' defensive back broke the school record in the 60-yard dash. He ran one of the fastest times in the country this year, too.

Sheffield, a former 5-star Alabama recruit that ended up going to JUCO before Ohio State, ran a 6.63 in the 60-yard dash this evening. It's the 14th-fastest time in the NCAA this year.

The Ohio State football player ran his record-breaking time at the Buckeye Tune-Up at Ohio State's French Field House. Unsurprisingly, his time won the final race.

Eleven Warriors was in attendance for the event. You can watch video of the race below:

Sheffield's time broke the Ohio State record that was previously set by Jonathan Burrell in 1995. His time was 6.65 seconds.

The Buckeyes' defensive back spoke to Eleven Warriors after running his record-breaking time.

"It's an amazing accomplishment," Sheffield told Eleven Warriors. "I just give it all to God, and my coaches, Coach Karen (Dennis, Ohio State's head track and field coach) and Joel (Brown, Ohio State's sprinters coach). They push me every day to work on my technique."

Ohio State's spring football begins soon, so Sheffield will soon be shifting his attention back to the gridiron. He plans on competing in one more meet - the Big Ten Indoor Championships next week.

Congrats to Kendall for his awesome accomplishment.
