Trayvon Bromwell and Tiffany Towsend both advanced at the U.S. Olympic Trials, per the Waco Tribune-Herald:

On the second day of the 2016 U.S. Olympic Trials, Trayvon Bromell and Tiffany Townsend both qualified for their 100-meter semifinals at Hayward Field Saturday.

Bromell, who turned professional last summer after two seasons at Baylor, tallied the fastest 100-meter qualifying time of any athlete at the meet.

He opened strong and closed even better to clinch the heat in 9.94 in a legal wind of 1.2 m/s.

Ross Woomer of Fansided has a look at Seth Russell:

Russell appears to be a tough customer so I don’t believe that last season’s injury will impede his progress moving forward. He’s an athlete and a fun, groovy player to watch.

Russell is undefeated as a starter, so If Grobe’s offense resembles that of year’s past – which it should because last year’s offensive coordinator Kendal Briles reamins with the program – then look for Russell make a name for himself while leading Baylor to a Conference Championship competing, double-digit win season.

Joey Johnston of Today’s U lists Kendall Wright as Baylor’s best receiver ever, but he does not have any Bears in his top five all-time Big 12 receivers:

BAYLOR: For sure, you must look to Baylor’s modern era, where wide receivers have put up video-game numbers. The best of the best are Corey Coleman (2013-15), Terrance Williams (2008-12) and Kendall Wright (2008-11). In 2012, Williams led the nation with 1,832 receiving yards. Last season, Coleman had 74 catches for 1,363 yards and 20 touchdowns (including four in one game) to earn the Biletnikoff Award. But nobody surpassed Wright, who finished as the school’s career leader in receptions (302), receiving yards (4,005) and touchdown catches (30).
