ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. (AP) - Manti Te'o is focused on getting faster.
The Notre Dame star and Heisman Trophy runner-up, who was clocked at 4.82 seconds in the 40-yard dash at the NFL scouting combine last week, says he'll improve his time and is looking forward to his pro day on March 26.
Te'o was in town Friday to accept the Maxwell Football Club's Maxwell Award for collegiate player of the year and Chuck Bednarik Award for collegiate defensive player of the year. Te'o spoke to reporters for nearly six minutes, but wouldn't address his highly-publicized online romance with a girlfriend that was exposed as a hoax.
He says he's glad the combine is over and he's working hard in preparation for the draft.
