If Only All Coaches Were This Honest With Their Athletes

– Texas Tech coach Wes Kittley talking with Lubbockonline.com about how he’s going to encourage Divine Oduduru to go pro.

For an inspiring profile of Oduduru’s dream to take his family out of poverty, read this IAAF feature on him. Given the fact he’s already semi-famous for a YouTube interview that he gave when he was just 16, and he just ran the 2nd greatest single-day 100/200 double in history (9.86/19.73), we hope he gets a lot.

Speaking of getting a lot, NCAA women’s sprint star Sha’Carri Richardson has gone pro.
