Ohio State cornerback Kendall Sheffield is pulling double duty this spring, competing for the track and field team in addition to the football team.
In his debut for the Buckeye track team on Saturday, Sheffield ran the 60-meter dash in 6.71 seconds – tied for the sixth-fastest time in Ohio State history – while finishing second at the Music City Challenge.

Southern Miss' McKinely West won the event with a time of 6.64 seconds.
Sheffield is coming off his first season with the Ohio State football team after one-year stops at Alabama and Blinn College. Sheffield played 626 snaps, including all but one snap in the season-ending Cotton Bowl, while recording 40 total tackles, nine pass breakups and one forced fumble in his first season as a Buckeye.
Sheffield, whose debut on the track proves he does not lack speed, will enter this spring as one of the team's top returning cornerbacks and a projected starter, along with Damon Arnette.
