Tony Dungy would love to see Usain Bolt play football

If you have watched Usain Bolt sprint and wondered how he might do as a football player, you’re not alone.

Hall of Fame coach Tony Dungy says he’d love to see Bolt on a football field to see what the 9-time gold medalist could do.

“I don’t know if he could survive but he’d scare a lot of people,” Dungy said in an interview with NBC co-worker Dan Patrick Saturday. “I would use him as a wide receiver. We would definitely clear out one side of the field because he is so explosive and fast. It would be fun to see him on a football field.”

Wouldn’t it ever be? Bolt is the world record holder in both the 100m and 200m sprint. And though it takes him a bit to separate himself from his competitors, there is no doubt that he could blaze past defensive backs as he runs a fly pattern. The other great part about seeing Bolt play football? You know his touchdown celebrations would be legendary.
