Keith Marshall proves that $peed pay$

File this under "Hard work really does pay off" - Keith Marshall sets top 40 time at the NFL Combine and Adidas pays him $50,000.
Marshall ran an official 4.31-second 40-yard dash time on Friday, which turned out to be the fastest time this year at the NFL scouting combine.
Because of the lightning-fast time, Adidas is set to pay Marshall $50,000.
Marshall, who began the 2015 season third on Georgia’s depth chart behind Nick Chubb and Sony Michel, came to Georgia with a reputation for being one of the fastest recruits in the country. Even after sustaining a torn ACL in 2013, which held him out of the majority of his 2014 season, Marshall showed what kind of speed he still has in Indianapolis on Friday.
Marshall ran unofficial times of 4.29 and 4.31 seconds before earning the official 4.31 mark.
Pretty cool for a guy who had a tough luck road and then was vastly under-utilized last season, especially late. Happy to see his hard work on the field and in recovery pay off. And for those of you who weren't aware, Marshall lost his grandmother last week too.

All of that, coupled with his superior all around performance in Indy, and I think this post deserves a signature Truth4 stiffarm!
