Track: Dorsey's Reggie Bell is no longer just a quarterback

May 22, 2012 |  7:36 am

Dorsey isn't playing in seven on seven passing tournaments this month, and the big reason is junior quarterback Reggie Bell is a little busy with track.

He has become the City Section's top hurdler and will go for a City individual title on Wednesday night at the track and field championships at Birmingham. Running events begin at 5:30 p.m.

Bell qualified first in the 110 highs with a time of 14.70 at last week's prelims. He has made steady progress all season.

Another improving athlete is Anthony Fowler of Taft. He ran the 400 meters in 47.99 at the prelims.

The 100-meter champion could be a football player. Canoga Park's Randy Uzoma and South East's Robert Lewis are among the contenders.

Taft's Lexis Lambert is the favorite in the girls' sprints. She had the fastest 100 prelim time of 12.30.
