Broderick Snoddy Leading Georgia Tech Track and Field

Football players who also run track are about as common as a baseball player hitting a baseball or a football player throwing a football. It just seems to go together like peanut butter and jelly, chicken and rice, or chicken and waffles. I guess chicken and waffles…I’ve never really understood why those went together. I shouldn’t knock it until I try it though.

Back to what’s important. Broderick Snoddy–yes the Broderick Snoddy who plays running back or b-back for the Ramblin Wreck of Georgia Tech–also runs track. He runs it very well actually. So well that he wins and stuff.

Snoddy won the 60 and 200 meters on the final day of competition at the Vanderbilt Invitational for the Yellow Jacket track and field team Saturday the 25th of January.

In the 200 meters Snoddy was so fast that he set a new record and tied his personal best of 21.23. In the 60-meter dash win he improved his second place time from 6.87 to 6.71 to take the victory. Victory is sweet in whatever sport Georgia Tech is able to win in.

Spencer Allen tied for eighth in the preliminaries of the 60-meter hurdles with a time of 8.14.

Lady Yellow Jacket Morgan Jackson took 14th of 33 in the mile run with a time of just over 5 minutes. Macho Man Yellow Jacket Jeremy Greenwald set a new personal best with a time just over 4 minutes to place third in the mile run.

The Yellow Jackets Track & Field team will be back at it on February 7th and 8th at the Samford Invitational in Birmingham, Alabama.
