DeAndre Hurley learned a lot in just 2.5 seconds.
That is all the time that stopped the Abbeville High School hurdler from adding two more state track championships to his collection. Two races, 2.5 seconds combined.

In those 2.5 seconds, Hurley learned the value of a good start and strong finish. And, he learned a little bit about motivation.
"It motivates me a lot," Hurley said. "Coming that close and falling that short, I know how much harder I have to work this year."
Now a senior with one more year left, Hurley is intent to add a few more state titles to his already polished track career.
