Gregory (21) beat "Dumpster Dave" (62.5) by about 2.5 seconds in a running of the Dumpster Dash Thursday evening, 5/22/08. Gregory's official time was 33.5 seconds, well off the record of 27.5 seconds set by 32-year-old Tate in 92-degree heat last summer.
Gregory played football in basketball in HS and is now preparing to join the Navy. His comment on beating a guy almost 3 times his age by 2.5 seconds: "I've got to get in better shape."
