Alphonse Mansare made history this morning as he ran an amazing 4.2 40-yard dash.

The 40-yard dash is one of football’s most salient events. It demonstrates an athlete’s explosiveness, prowess and most importantly speed. WJ football senior captain, Alphonse Mansare, made history early this morning at approximately 4:01 a.m. when he ran an incredible 4.2-second 40-yard dash. At 6 foot 4 and weighing in at over 300 pounds, Mansare’s agility and lightning speed dazzled spectators and broke Montgomery County records.

To put this in perspective, the average offensive tackle in the NFL draft runs 5.32. When asked about how he achieved this impressive feat, Mansare credited it to “running on the beach.” Mansare, an avid beach goer and surfer, uses the sand to stabilize his footwork and gain speed.

Despite this Mansare has been on the receiving end of hate for his achievement. Mansare attributes all the negativity to the fact that his haters are jealous people who cannot run a 4.2-second forty-yard dash.
“#*@! The haters, haters be bored so I don’t give them attention,” Mansare said.

Mansare is a Division 1 offensive line football commit to Maryland’s own Morgan State University. “I will use my speed to clamp up defense ends,” Mansare said.

Despite this massive accomplishment, Mansare is continually striving to do better. He is currently working hard every day and hopes to run a 3.3 40-yard dash in a year.
