I could swear they called Mo Jackson a 4.2 40 runner in '98 or so.
Granted, we take those numbers with a grain of salt. But he was as fast as anybody.
MOE JACKSONS SPEED AND SKILLS SCHOOL
ELITE SKILLS TRAINING FOR ALL FOOTBALL POSITIONS
Born and raised in Rochester NY, Moe is one of the most decorated athletes to come out of Rochester. After receiving numerous scholarship offers to Division I colleges Moe chose Syracuse University where he started most special teams as a true freshman. He went on to have a really good college career. Leading the team in receptions and yards per catch his senior year. Moe also lead the team in return yards as a kick returner. Another one of his big accomplishments at Syracuse was becoming the fastest player in Syracuse football history after running a blazing 4.18 second 40 yard dash. Think it was a fluke? He did it again recording a 4.19 a year later. Moe went on to sign a 2 year contract with the Buffalo Bills. He later took his talents to play in the CFL for the British Columbia Lions. Moe ended his career after playing 3 seasons with Rochester Raiders in the AIFL. Moe holds the record in every receiver category for the Raiders. He lead the team to Rochesters first ever minor league professional sports championship.
It was a pleasure to play with a guy who is determined, goal oriented, smart and fast. Moe was a QB's dream. What I mean by that is that you want a guy who can take the top off of coverages and catch any pass that comes his way. Thats called a security blanket. I've had the privilege of playing with different types of WR's and all had different qualities. Moe definitely was one of the fastest.
