Two Mountaineer skill-position players wide receiver Jalen Virgil and running back/receiver Darrynton Evans have demonstrated some ridiculous speed in the last couple days. On Saturday, Virgil completed 100-meter dash in 10.32 seconds, the third-fastest time in stopwatch history. Then on Tuesday, Evans ran a hand 4.39 seconds dash.


While this isn't a video from Virgil's Saturday race, it is a clip of him in his first track meet a couple weeks ago, where he ran a 10.40

But there's a larger looming question here: who is faster? Well, I'm glad you asked.


Through the power of math and my college education, I can at least provide a path to a numerical answer. First, let's get them data in the same metrics.

Evans' run spanned yards, while Virgil's came in meters. According to Google's unit converter, 1 meter equals 1.09361 yards. So Virgil covered 109.361 yards on Saturday.

That distance, divided by 10.32 seconds the, turns into a speed of 10.597 yards per second.

Finding out Evans' speed is easier: Forty yards divided by 4.39 seconds equals 9.112 yards per.

By the math, Virgil is faster. That, however, comes with.

Top-end speed is different from acceleration," said Damion McLean, who coaches Virgil as the associate head coach on the track team. "Really to compare, you'd have to have both do a 40-yard dash with stopwatch speed record.
