Amir Rasul Two Sports …. One Speed FAST……..

Looking for high velocity and power? Look no further than South Florida’s double sport standout athlete Amir Rasul, Jr.  This thirteen year-old is full of speed and power on the track and the gridiron. He stands at 5’ 11’ and is just shy of 180 pounds.  Amir boasts an impressive sprinter’s resume that resembles the early accomplishment of greats such as Willie Gault, Herschel Walker and Bo Jackson.  His gridiron style is most compared to that of Eric Dickerson.

While Amir had a natural gift of speed, his talent is finely tuned by his “in-house” coach, Amir Rasul, Sr., affectionately called “Coach Dad” at the dinner table.   Amir, Jr.’s  workouts are tough and he is as disciplined as a professional athlete.  His diet is monitored closely by his mother and he relaxes his body in alternating ice and warm water baths.  Early in his sprinting career, Amir had to learn how to use starting blocks. Soon after, he learned how to successfully incorporate the drive phase technique into his events.

 

 

 

Prior to his quest to become a national champion sprinter, Amir played football for the Pop Warner Football league in Miami Florida.  He played offensive and defensive positions for the Richmond Giants and the Palmetto Raiders. His favorite positions are Running Back and Linebacker.  Because of his size, Amir always had to play with older athletes.  He gained valuable experience by playing with these athletes. Now, Amir is touted as an exceptional athlete to watch entering high school in Fall 2012.

A few of Amir’s accomplishments include:

2009    AAU Jr.  Olympics       1st Place 100m (12.40)      2nd Place 200m (25.58)
