We all know Oklahoma State cornerback Justin Gilbert has blazing speed, as most-evidenced by his electrifying kick returns during his two-plus seasons in Stillwater.

While it’s entertaining to watch two big defensive tackles–Anthony Rogers and Davidell Collins–in a 100-yard foot race at the top of the video, the really good stuff comes when Gilbert races linebacker Ryan Simmons, who has a clear head start.

Gilbert catches up with Simmons, smiles and chuckles as he taps him on the shoulder, beats him and then throws his arms out like an airplane as he “flies” off the field.

Simmons’ response? “He’s too fast!”
