Former Oklahoma State cornerback Justin Gilbert continues to rack up postseason accolades. Even some of the “fun” variety.

Gilbert won the Skechers GoRun Hands Competition at the Quicken Loans All-Star Football Challenge Tuesday in Dallas.

Gilbert finished with a time of 22.61 seconds, beating Florida’s Marcus Robinson (23.64 seconds) and Alabama’s Ha Ha Clinton-Dix (24.32 seconds).

Gilbert also finished second in the team competition (62.95 seconds), alongside Clemson quarterback Tajh Boyd, BYU linebacker Kyle Van Noy, Texas A&M offensive lineman Jake Matthews and Tulane kicker Cairo Santos.

Gilbert, a consensus All-American and Thorpe Award finalist, tallied seven interceptions (including two returned for touchdowns) and is projected by ESPN NFL Draft guru Mel Kiper to be a top-10 pick.
