Cole Beck ACC 100 Meter Champion

Cole Beck, a VT junior, won the 100 meters race at the 2021 Spring Outdoor Track & Field Championships at NC State. His winning time was 10.11 seconds, tied for 14th in the NCAA's this year, going into the NCAA Nationals. He's concentrating solely on track now, after a couple of years also playing on the football team.

Wish we had found a way to get him on the field for KO returns...that's a blazing fast time. Congrats, Cole!

But can he catch the ball? /s

And could he avoid finding new ways to get tackled?

If last year is our sample set then I doubt he's less qualified than anyone else on our return ST.

Well, considering Herbert handled most KR's (and very well) and Beck had zero of the lateral moves needed for PR, I doubt this is correct.

.....and Beck had zero of the lateral moves needed for PR.....

After viewing Beck's Blacksburg H.S football highlights, I wouldn't say "zero" lateral moves. Also, He was Virginia All State Kick Return Team.

After viewing them when he was coming out of HS, I would.

deceptively fast, reminds me of Danny Coale

My HS Linebacker coach often referred to me as deceptively slow.....

How big is Beck? He looks huge compared to his peers in this race!

Looks like he could clean up his somewhat clunky looking start and improve an already remarkable time.

Yep, that 4.29 sec. forty yard time he ran in high school could use a little work.

Not sure if you think I was speaking negatively. I wasn't. He did not have the best start out of the blocks, so yes I think he could improve what is already an all ACC time.

Actually Beck agrees with you. He's stated that he has to work more on his 1st 50 yards.

Some taller guys chop step at the start to get vertical quicker. I never liked that approach...keep your head down and forward for the first 15, then look up and roll...but looks like they've got him up and out of the crouch in 8 yards or so. And then he drops the hammer and gets separation by the 40-60 mark.

All I can say is, go man go!

I don't think I could do 50m in 10.11.

If you play it, they will win.

He's so fast he makes fast people look not fast

Congrats to Cole!
The Hokies have a really good track & field team!
Go Hokies!

Go Hokies

We Beck?

Don't call it a comebeck.

Two turntables and a microphone?

I can imagine no more rewarding a career. And any man who may be asked in this century what he did to make his life worthwhile, I think can respond with a good deal of pride and satisfaction:
β€œI served in the United States Navy"

He's 3rd best - only behind Steiner Marzen and Radeburger

I'm here for the memes, I just stay for the football.

Awesome pull.

Bravo.

Beck looks huge compared to most of those other guys. Man I would love having him doing KO returns or something. Wow.

Why are there 4 FSU guys in the race?

Even when you get skunked; fishing never lets you down. 🎣

Because they are faster than everyone else. (They finished 3rd in the NCAA with the 4x100 team.)
