Thanks to Adarian for sending me the link to the video.
Everyone talks about the fastest 40 yard dash time. The fastest 40 yard I recall was the “4.17” by Deion Sanders. If that is a hand time, that makes 4.2 (rounded up) or 4.44 FAT (by adding 0.24 from hand to FAT)

Fastest 40 yard dash ever?
Fast forward 33 seconds into the video. And, of course, ignore the comments and responses from YouTube.
In this video, Reggie Bush records a 4.33 for the 40 Yard Dash (as marked by the black cones) running on a track surface, possibly with spikes. Some of the questionable times were on grass or astroturf.
What do you think contributed to his time? Raw speed and genetics? Do you really think he hired a personal coach to run a faster 40 yard dash?
This could be the fastest 40 yard dash ever recorded on camera. I’ll start digging. This could be fun.
UPDATE: Sorry, the video is no longer on YouTube.
