    Former Texas State tailback Stanley Zwinggi has set up his own website, with video links, and notes he recently ran 4.18 40.

    DD.comment: As we've noted before, scouts timed Stan at 4.35 at his Junior Day (last spring). A few weeks ago his best 40 time at his senior Pro Day, according to respected draft analyst Gil Brandt, was a 4.47. Mr.Brandt did note, however, that T.S.U.'s Pro Day was held outside, in poor conditions -- rain and lots of wind. Zwinggi sort of reminds us of former D-II star Brad Pyatt (Northern Colorado), a free agent blazer, who did a nice job returning kicks and punts for the Colts as a rookie in 2003, until a rash injuries derailed his N.F.L. career.

    LATEST NEWS 04/09/2009: An NFL team called the track coach at Texas State, asked him to time Zwinggi in the 40 yd and 55 meter with electric timers. Zwinggi ran on the track surface and had a 4.18 FAT in the 40, a 6.12 FAT in the 55 meter. WOW!

    “Had Stan had the opportunity to run for me this season, he would have made the national meet and done quite well. He is faster than anyone we have ever had.” – Adam Hudson, Texas State Track and Field Coach

    “We won games because of his speed.” - David Bailiff, Rice University head coach

    Coach Bailiff recently described Mr. Zwinggi as, “extremely coachable . . . highly intelligent . . . hardworking,” with his greatest strengths being his, “speed, great work ethic and attitude.”

    “He may be the toughest player I’ve coached.” - Brad Wright, current Texas State head coach

    Coach Wright was referring to Zwinggi’s ability to play through the pain of a broken hand to finish a game in 2006. Wright also describes Zwinggi as “very coachable” and “intelligent,” with his greatest strengths being his “speed, toughness and running style”.

    Played as RB behind Adrian Petersen. Zwinggi had 21 yards on 3 carries and 2 tackles on kickoff returns.

    Draft Scout Stan Zwinggi News
    04/04/09 - Texas State Pro day: Some light drizzling and a stiff wind was what hampered Texas State’s pro day on March 24. Despite the weather, seven players worked out outdoors on FieldTurf in front of six team representatives. RB Stan Zwinggi (5-9 3/4, 201 pounds) and S Jamal Williams (5-9 3/8, 198 pounds) were the prospects of note. Zwinggi ran a 4.47 with the wind and a 4.54 against the wind in the 40, had a 35 1/2-inch vertical jump, a 10-foot, 4-inch broad jump, a 4.40 short shuttle, a 6.94 three-cone drill and did 18 bench press reps. – Gil Brandt,

    So it sounds like he probably runs in the 4.35-4.45 range :)

    thats what im thinking, and you have to remember, some tracks are faster than others, im not saying that thats the case, but has been documented sometimes that maybe the field that the player ran on wasnt as long as suppose to be etc

    or it could be when he ran the 4.47, that he had some kind of injury at the time, im sure his dad could tell us why

    I'd sign him as an UDFA. Can always use more speed on ST, and Alonzo Coleman has not impressed me the last few years he's been on the PS.
