NC State’s Speed Demons

The NC State Football team just wrapped up 2 days of testing, and if you want to know how fast a player’s actual 40-yard dash is, you have to put a laser on it.

The Wolfpack’s top performers by three different groupings were Senior Defensive End James Smith-Williams, Redshirt Freshman Running Back Trent Pennix, and Redshirt Junior Wide Receiver C.J. Riley.

Here’s some perspective.

Pennix didn’t come to NC State known for his speed. What can a year in Coach Thunder’s program do? His 4.4 laser speed would have tied Oklahoma State’s Justice Hill for the FASTEST time at the 2019 NFL Combine for Running Back’s.
