Ford won the 60m dash over the weekend at the Clemson Invitational and did so with an automatic qualifying time for the NCAA Indoor Championships. He ran a 6.59 in the final and finished ahead of teammates Trenton Guy and Justin Murdock. Ford, the ACC’s record-holder in the event, was named Co-Performer-of-the-Week along with Jerome Miller of Georgia Tech.
