Dequavious Charleston blazed through the 40-yard dash with an unofficial time of 4.34 seconds at the Willie Simmons Elite Camp, July 15 at Florida A&M University. The impressive time was the fastest logged at the camp, in which 300 players participated. Charleston is without question a track and field star, but his swift speed is a boon to the Gadsden High School football team, as well. The rising junior has even been offered a football scholarship as a result of his incredible performance on the football field.
