Miami Dolphins speedster Tyreek Hill ran 6.70 seconds in the 60-meter dash at the USA Track and Field Masters Indoor Championships on Saturday in Louisville, Kentucky.
The time ranks Hill, who was competing in the 25-29 age group, outside the top 200 men in the world this year in the event.
“Never racing again had me out there looking wild,” tweeted the seven-time Pro Bowl wide receiver shortly after his performance.
Earlier this week, Hill posted a video on social media of him practicing a block start on a track at the University of Miami, with the caption, “Felt good to put the spikes back on !!!”.
Hill, 29, a world-class sprinter in high school, was participating in his first track meet since 2014, when he ran a 6.64 in the 60-meter dash. Hill, nicknamed “Cheetah” for being widely considered the fastest player in the NFL, qualified for the 2012 Olympic Trials.
He and teammate Jaylen Waddle have formed one of the fastest receiver tandems in the NFL.
“To have two guys like that, with that kind of talent and that kind of speed, just puts so much stress on a defense,” said Dolphins wide receivers coach Wes Welker earlier this season. “Their speed, it’s really changed my perspective on the receiver position. … Not only do they have the speed, they’re dogs. They’re tough. It’s very rare to find guys that are that fast, that explosive but aren’t track guys.”
It looks like Hill won’t be a track guy after all.
