Texas Relays Roundup

The nation's best high school and college athletes are on the 40 Acres this weekend for the 2016 Texas Relays.

The annual Texas Relays officially began Wednesday with the decathlon and heptathlon - two events that sound absolutely miserable - but Friday brings the races involving current and prospective football players. 

Here's a list of notable guys who will compete at Texas Relays.

Burt will show off his speed running in the 110m hurdles prelim Friday at 9:35 a.m.
