It's lose-lose for Ted. (If he believes can beat any other NFL player, he should have been specific).
I dont think it's a lose lose

He is racing the fastest kid in the country.

He wins... he is fast

He loses...he gave the kid a shot

As long as he does it with grace he wins
That kid is crazy fast.

I don’t think Ginn would really be able to beat him, but what do I know. Ginn is a football player, that kid is an Olympic hopeful. Ginn really comes out in win-win in my mind. He loses nobody really expected him to beat this kid, he wins and he is faster than anyone thought. The better question is what will the NCAA do to “white lightning” if he wins $10,000 in a bet?
OK, I get it , kes ...

Still, I don't think this is what he had in mind. If he doesn't accept the challenge, does he embarrass himself ?
I expect Ginn to win ...

He's a grown man (and claims he's run a 4.22 forty). If lets some high school kid beat him, that can't be good for his bravado.

Ginn would get destroyed and he knows it. Ginn ran a 4.38 at the combine in his prime. He didn't get faster at 34. His track records are a little dubious given his hyperbole about his career. He claims to have beat Usain Bolt in a relay race but the source of that is Ted Ginn. No one can find actual evidence of it. I have seen an 10.2 and less impressive and more likely 10.5 100m times listed for Ginn. Whatever the case that was like 15 years ago.

Meanwhile Bowling just ran a high school record 10.13. That was be the 36th fastest time in the world this year. His best is a 9.98 which would be the 7th best time this year. This kid is a serious Olympic hopeful and would easily beat Ginn.

Hey Manny

No disrespect but what does being a grown man have to do with it?

That Bowling kid is faster than any NFL player not named McCourty og Tyreek Hill. (Imo)
At 100m That is

Ginn May have run that speed  
UConn4523 : 5/19/2019 9:13 am : link
but that was 12 years ago. Who gets faster in their 30’s?

This kid probably beats him easily.
It's just fun

Ginn wants to see how fast the kid is. I suspect he will be looking at the kd's rear end in 10 meters.

Don't worry. I'm sure some sports association will find a way to spoil the fun and stop the race.
"that kid has a high motor"

"Probably"? A high school kid in his physical prime with freakish speed against a man in his 30s?
Ginn is going to get smoked!

A guy who was really fat in his 20s but then lost the weight in his 30s. Like Jared
He is young and it is a lot of money.

But he better win or he will wear this around his neck forever. I would counsel no. The other guy is already a has been win or lose.

Carl Lewis ran his fastest time in his 30s.

In 1991 he had his peak year at 30 and would never win another 100m or 200m race after that. So after 30 he not be the same sprinter.
That would be dumb and dumber.

He wins who cares, if he loses who cares. Get a life after FB.
