The fastest recruit on Oklahoma State’s commitment list is without a doubt Chuba Hubbard. As a canadian sprinter, Hubbard has been clocked at a 10.55 100m sprint, placing him fourth overall at the 2015 IAAF World Youth Championships in Cali, Colombia, last July.But as the No. 1 recruit in Canada, he’s a heady enough runner to not only put his speed to use but also his Chris Carson-esque hops. Check out the guts to go up over two defenders before being dragged down:Hubbard and Bev Facey went on to win 55-0, and it’s nice to see as a runner that Hubbard is developing some tools in his arsenal his senior year. There’s a pretty good chance he’ll see the field as a true freshman at OSU.If you’re looking for the comments section, it has moved to our forum, The Chamber.

The Family ties are strong for many competitors at the X Blades National 18 Years and Under Championships, but QSST’s Peter Norman has a greater family affinity with the game than most.Peter’s parents Greg and Kerry Norman are former National Open World Cup representatives.Greg is a former Australian Men’s and Mixed Open representative, and Kerry is Australia’s most capped National representative having played, coached, or managed Australia a record 78 times.She is in the Hall of Fame and is the current coach of the Australian Women’s Open team who won the FIT World Cup in Stellenbosch South Africa in 2007.Peter 16, is no slouch himself and is racking up some very impressive statistics in terms of his young career.Peter is the only player to have represented Queensland at every available schools age division since he was 10 years old and has an unbroken seven-year tenure in the maroon and white.Peter took the Queensland representative record away from National Rugby League star PJ Marsh, who held the record of six consecutive years representing Queensland at schools level before Peter snared the mark in 2007.Kerry, ironically was the manager in one of PJ’s early representative teams and she and Peter had a chance meeting with PJ last year on a visit to Sydney, and the Eels hooker joked that Peter deserved the record because “I had to repeat grade 12”.Peter is proud of his record wearing the Queensland colours and also of his parents.“Mum and Dad have done heaps for me and I am very proud of what they’ve achieved. It’s awesome to think that I’ve done ok and achieved some good stuff, but I still have a long way to go,” Norman said.Peter has enjoyed an exceptional 2007, starring for Sharks at the NTL in March, leading South Coast at the QSST Open Championships in April, performing well at the National Youth Camp in July, and winning a South East Queensland Touch League Premiership with the Southern Storm Men’s Open team just last week.The only downside for Peter, was a bout of pneumonia that laid him low for 4 weeks, and included a week’s stint in hospital in August.Pete is back fighting fit now, in fact when the talented youngster completes his duties with Queensland tomorrow afternoon (hopefully with a winning grand final appearance) he will be making his way to Port Maquarie to contest the 2007 National Body boarding Championships Sunday morning.Pete finished 5th in the 2006 National Body boarding Championships and will be looking to go better in 2007, despite backing up from his week of Touch in Coffs Harbour.“I’m looking forward to it, it’ll be tough to back up, but I like challenging myself and it’ll all be good. Mum’s coming, she reckons Bodyboarding is like watching paint dry compared to Touch, but she is really supportive. Dad’s in Europe at the Rugby World Cup, but he is checking in with me to see how we’re going, so hopefully we’ll have some good news for him tomorrow afternoon,” Peter said.Peter has played a starring role for QSST with his intelligent ball play, robust defence, and mature talk on the line being a feature of an improved showing from the QSST team in 2007.
