Gridder Wade honored by SEC

UT football signee Jonathan Wade continues to make his mark on the track.

The speedy freshman was named SEC Track Athlete of the Week after winning the 55-meter dash in an all-comers meet on the UT campus last week.

Just 10 days after he put away his helmet and shoulder pads, Wade recorded the SEC's fasted 55-meter time of the season, a 6.26 clocking which provisionally qualifies him for the NCAA Indoor Track & Field Championships.

Wade and fellow footballer Jabari Greer return to action this weekend at the Kroger Invitational in Blacksburg, Va.
