Surprising Jefferson SPRINTS to the front of track and field Ki drk Baptiste, Carl Lewis, Joe deLoach, Leroy Burrell — all top sprinters in the nation, all from UH. Soon to be added to this list is Sam Jefferson. Sam Jefferson grew up in a small town near Waco and lettered in football, basketball, and track. Last year, the freshman runner immediately set the SWC sprint world on fire. There were a few setbacks though, like in last year's Penn Relays where a photo finish in the 100 meters made Sam return the prize awarded to him when the pictures apparently showed him placing second. Jefferson quips "I did not know if I won or not, really". However, he knows how to bounce back from be in better position to make the 1996 team for the 96' Olympics in Atlanta. Carl Lewis has boon helping Jefferson improve, saying "He's the best sprinter in the SWC, and as long as he works on his starts he'll do well." He also has the help of Coach lorn Tellez. "We ha ve an advantage with Tellez," said Jefferson. "The man is the best in the business and that's why I'm here. Carl has helped me a lot, I really try to listen to him as much as I can. While concentrating on only the 100 last year, Jefferson added the 200 meters in his arsenal this year and had his best time in the SWC meet placing 5th with a time of 20.80 seconds. photo by Thomas Nguyen adversity as he has won several races since despite slow starts. This year, Jefferson did well in the indoor season, coming in second at the SWC indoor championships in the 100m, but only by 1/100th of a second, and he took the 55m with a 6.27 time. The sophomore has won the 100m in the Houston Triangular, and the Penn Relays to avenge his defeat last year, and in the SWC. Jefferson felt pressure since the SWC track and field championships were held two weeks earlier than usual, due to Olympic Trials. He took the championship in the 100m with a time of 10.26 seconds, his best college time. This gave Jefferson a place in the NCAA outdoor Track Championship. With the impressive time, Jefferson was also invited to try for a spot with the US Olympic Team, but with such stars as Carl Lewis and Leroy Burrel, it might be a long shot for '92, but many feel that Jefferson will Like many athletes, Jefferson made sure he got involved in the community. He was active in his church and in volunteer programs such as the YMCA. "I try to get involved with the youth especially those in the inner city". He wanted to be able to spread and relate his experiences and how he achieved success so far. On the day of this interview, Jefferson was scheduled to speak at Yates High School. Jefferson looked forward to the UT Invitational where he will run against Carl Lewis. A few more meets later and then its off to the Olympic Track and Field Trials in New Orleans, Jefferson sounded enthusiastic about the trials and he hoped to surprise a lot of people <mu\ get his toot in the door for'96. Indeed, do not be surprised if you find Sam Jefferson's name among the many track stars and Olympic Champions that the UH track team has produced. -John Mi j ares Track & Field 147
