NASHVILLE — Perhaps a third straight OVC Field Athlete of the Week is on the horizon for sophomore R’Lazon Brumfield after his showcase performance on the second day of the Hilltopper Relays at Western Kentucky University Saturday.

The Jacksonville, Fla. native took the field by storm with two first-place finishes for the Tennessee State men’s track and field team.

For the second straight week, Brumfield placed first in the long jump, which came in a field of 14. Brumfield coveted a mark of 7.65m Saturday, which topped his Black and Gold Invite mark of 7.33m. He also achieved a first-place finish in the triple jump. The leap by Brumfield was recorded at 15.65m.

Brumfield also finished in 14th place (11.04) in the 100-meter dash.
