On Saturday, Washington Huskies wide receiver John Ross showed up and showed out at the NFL Combine when he ran an unofficial 4.22 seconds in the 40-yard dash, breaking Chris Johnson‘s previous record of 4.24.
Before the combine began, Adidas offered an Island to anybody that could break that record, but John Ross won’t be receiving it because he didn’t wear Adidas’ 5-Star 40 cleats that were required to receive that island. Ross wore Nike shoes instead.
After the record breaking performance, Ross wasn’t too broken up about it as he gave a fantastic answer on why he didn’t wear the Adidas shoes.
