Sprinter Ronald Darby considers himself a football player first

Track and field has allowed him to criss-cross the country, even given him a chance to flash his passport, but Ronald Darby says the sport will only take him so far. That, however, is solely his choice. Darby thinks of himself as a football player rather than track star. He's already received 17 offers from major Division I football programs such as Notre Dame, Maryland, Florida and West Virginia. "Getting dressed for game day, coming out on kick return. Track doesn't give me that feeling," Darby said. (Washington Post)
