Trio of football players show speed on ND track and field team

One of the biggest track and field meets of the year is set for Saturday at Notre Dame, and the Irish are looking to a few football players to help bring in the accolades this year.

It's the Alex Wilson Invitational at the Loftus Center this weekend, and the Irish are looking to continue the success after a big weekend at the Big East Indoor Championships.

Notre Dame won the meet in New York City a few weeks ago, helped by a trio of football players: Bennett Jackson, George Atkinson and his brother, Josh. The three show off their speed on the field and on the track, and they hope to help the Irish win another meet this weekend.

Admission for the meet held at Notre Dame is free. Events start at 5:00 p.m. on Friday, and the meet will continue all day on Saturday at Loftus.
