All news is courtesy of ESPN and ESPN Sport Science: It’s a great time in televised broadcasting when ESPN’s Sport Science is on! This week the show was about Cowboy’s star wide receiver Dez Bryant. Bryant, an offensive force for the Dallas Cowboys, has been questioned and compared to Detroit Lions WR Calvin Johnson, who in the eyes of many is the best wide receiver in the NFL. Since the two talented receivers face off this Sunday, the folks at ESPN and Sport Science decided to give our boy Dez some attention. In a campy sketch, where Bryant dons a practice jersey and helmet catches passes from an..ahem… overly enthusiastic “cowboy”, the show features a challenge in which the speed of Dez’s hands are put to the test. A football is launched via a throwing machine that zips the ball out at 30 mph. Bryant then turns and catches the ball at various paces. Dez Bryant claimed to have the fastest hands of any guest on Sport Science. When the results were through, Dez Bryant was able to catch a 3 yard bullet pass, in one fifth of a second! The record western style “quick draw” record is currently held at .208 seconds. Nice job Bryant, or should I say… Nice Shootin’ Tex! Will Dez’s fast hands be enough to stop Calvin “ Megatron” Johnson and the Detroit Lions?
