    Talking Keagan Parks

    The First Team All-State tailback from Webster City made quite a performance at the track meet yesterday. 11.4 in the 100, Harrington from CF was 11.13 but they were not racing against each other. If Parks had been running 4-A he would have gotten second, if he did not improve his time.

    He also won the 200, the 400 relay/ The media in the eastern part of Iowa has been referring to Harrington as the fastest Iowan ever.

    I heard once that Parks was going to walk on at ISU, as a preferred walk-on or something. Anyone know if that is true? What is his status?

    The Rag said he's going to JC. I think it was in Ft. Dodge but not sure.

    clyde duncan from des moines tech was probably the fastest in the 100 yard-100 meter distance when he ran a 9.3 100 yard distance at the drake relays in 1958
    it still stands for the 100 yrads as an iowa high school record. i do not know the equivalent of a 100 yd dash vs. 100 meters, but i believe the 9.3 100 yard dash would be somewhat faster if duncan had completed a 100 meter run in his equivalent 9.3 100 yard speed in the 100 meter distance..

    Not exactly what you mean by "faster" but a meter is slightly longer than a yard. So 100 meter times would be very slightly more than 100 yd times.


    I'd agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong.

    100 meters = about 110 yards.

    I'd say you could add at least 1 sec on to any 100 yd time.

    3600 inches : 9.3 sec. = 3937.0079 inches : 10.7016038 sec

    100 yds......................... 100 meters


    All truisms are false. All of them.

    This does not take into account that he would be at/close to top speed for the extra distance.

    A guy running 11.1 is far from the fastest of all time. Jerred herring ran 10.7 I think. Just a few years ago

    Adam Haluska ran a 10.1, which is the all time state record but was severely wind aided. I remember Marques Simmons running in the 10s a few times and I'm pretty sure Hakim Hill did as well.

    Yeah, there is no way a 9.3 100yds extrapolates to a 10.7 100m.

    You also have to add ~0.24 on the conversion from hand-timed to FAT.

    9.3 for 100 yards = 10.2 for 100 meters

    That wasn't Harrington's fastest time of the year.

    Re: Keagan Parks

    Posters have really gotten into discussion of meters v yards in relation to Parks' speed, but what I was getting at was is the kid likely to now, or after JC or whenever possibly going to come to ISU? For those that have seen him, what do they think of him as a rb or db prospect.? Do they know what his thoughts are regarding his opinions of the ISU coaches and ISU?

    He signed to go to Iowa Central in Ft. Dodge. They said they will give him a shot at running back.
