Michael Shaw: 1%
Darryl Stonum: 0%
In a predictable landslide victory, Denard Robinson wins the race. I wasn’t fully convinced that Robinson was the fastest dude on the team until the Notre Dame game last year. His acceleration on that 87-yard touchdown run was incredible.
The only player that I thought might give him a run for his money was Troy Woolfolk, an indoor track runner himself. Woolfolk’s nickname when he was playing free safety back in 2009 was “The Eraser” for the way he made up for everyone else’s mistakes. I have yet to see him truly get burned in a footrace, so hopefully he can return from his ankle injury without lingering effects.
Furman and Shaw are both speedsters in their own right. Furman reportedly ran a 4.37 forty yard dash in high school, and Shaw was a potential qualifier for the Junior Olympics in high school if he had decided to stick with track.
Stonum is a little too boozed up to run straight right now, so I guess that’s why he didn’t get any votes.
