Evans, Goodwin into Nationals in 4x100

Marquise Goodwin won't be the only member of the football team to qualify for the National Track and Field meet.

Goodwin and defensive back Sheroid Evans were both members of a 4x100 team that ran 39.53, the fifth fastest time on Saturday, and a good enough clocking to earn those two, along with fellow tracksters Emerson Sanders and Trevante Rhodes a trip to nationals. Evans ran the anchor leg.

Evans is generally considered the second-fastest football player in the Big 12 to Goodwin and made his mark as one of the country's top runners as a junior in high school. His best numbers came at the 2010 state track meet. That's when Evans ran an official 10.39 100-meter dash, the fourth-fastest time in the country that year, and the fastest clocking in Texas. At that same meet, Evans ran an official 20.82 200-meter dash, the fastest time in the country in the event.

Goodwin's qualifying meant that the wide receiver qualified for Nationals in three separate events, the long jump — where Goodwin will be considered one of the favorites — the 100-meter dash and the 4x100. Goodwin qualified for the long jump on Thursday, and the 100-meter open on Friday.
