From South Florida to Jacksonville week five of the season didn't disappoint. The Bob Hayes Invitational had the most "WOW" performances of the weekend, but so did South Florida's GMAC & BCAA Championships earlier in the week, and the IMG Academy Invitational that mother nature tried to mess with. We narrowed down our favorite "CAN'T MISS" race videos!
Two of the best sprint races in Bob Hayes Invitational history came in 2013 with Jones star Levonte "Kermit" Whitfield and Stanton Prep's Kendal Williams. Whitfield bested Williams in the 100 10.15 to 10.18 that saw the two fastest times in the country and ever in meet history. The pair battled back in the 200 where Williams capture the victory in a nation leading 20.63 with Whitfield three one-hundredths back in 20.66 which are number one and three AT in meet history. We take a look at the top 25 marks ALL-Time at the storied Bob Hayes Invitational!
