It looks as if we might see NFL reporter Adam Schefter and Chiefs receiver Tyreek Hill in a 100-yard dash.
It turns out everyone wants a piece of you when you’re at the top. Given Tyreek Hill’s title as the fastest player in the National Football League, it’s no surprise that other elite athletes want a chance at taking that honor away from him.
Hill is used to various challenges for a race at this point in his five-year NFL career, but on Tuesday, a plan began to come together around an interesting idea. Instead of another electrifying athlete wanting a piece of Hill, it was the Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver who said he would be up for racing NFL reporter Adam Schefter.
Check out the following segment from Get Up on ESPN for an explanation:
Hill’s response on air to the idea and seeing Adam Schefter run a 40-yard dash on his own was hilarious. “You know what, man, I’m scared. His form is already better than mine, so I need to work on my form a little bit more. Yes, Schefty, post-COVID, we gotta get it in for charity or something like that.”
From there, Hill then challenged the ESPN reporter to a longer 100-yard dash and said he would offer Schefter a 40-yard head start. The Chiefs receiver also noted that he would be willing to wear full pads and gear, creating more of an advantage for Schefter.
Hill is currently on a tremendous run for the Chiefs in a season in which they’re trying to “run it back” as defending Super Bowl Champs. Hill just set a career-high in single game receiving yards with 269 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. In addition, he has 13 receiving touchdowns on the season, most in the league this year.
Hill has 68 catches for 1,021 yards through 11 starts this season.
