Looks like the new asst track coach (for throws) at Drake has been pulling athletes from other sports and teaching them javelin, weight throw, hammer, etc.  Such a great idea, and awesome to see a throws-specific coach.  I don't think we've had that for awhile.  The U of Iowa track team has done this for years, with football players doubling as sprinters and throwers.  This info is from Coach Zane Chapman's Instagram, and there may be more than these 5 that are giving it a try:
Jake Taylor - soccer (grad) - javelin
Joey Harkins - former(?) football (fr) - hammer
Jacob Lewis - football (soph) - javelin
Peter Read - football (sr) - weight throw (indoor) and hammer (outdoor)
Devin Cates - football (jr) - weight throw (indoor)
