Incoming Penn State RB breaks 100-meter dash record previously held by Olympian
Wanting to catch a glimpse of incoming Penn State running back Journey Brown? Don’t blink, then. You might miss him.
Brown, who was competing in the Pennsylvania Interscholastic Athletic Association (PIAA) Track and Field Championships on Saturday, showed off his blazing speed in the 100-meter dash. His time was clocked at 10.43 seconds, which set a new state record.
The previous record? Yeah, that was held by Olympian Leroy Burrell, who set the mark back in 1985.
Correction. …Journey Brown broke the PIAA with final time of 10:43 @mvillebulldogs

The Penn State commit already had some impressive athletic accomplishments before breaking the state record in the 100-meter dash. He finished his high school football career with over 7,000 yards and 100 touchdowns.
Perhaps maybe even more impressive than that? Brown rushed for 722 yards and accounted for 10 touchdowns earlier this year.
So sure, why not add a state track record to the list of impressive feats.
Brown is a three-star running back who ranks as the 14th-best recruit from Pennsylvania and No. 51 for his position nationally.
But Brown is starting to look more and more like a five-star athlete before even stepping foot in Happy Valley.
