For the second consecutive year in 2005, Brazell was the runner-up in the mens 110m hurdles at the NCAA Outdoor Championships, crossing the line in the new career-best time of 47.67 seconds. Brazell, who broke his own LSU school record by finishing in 48.52 seconds in the semifinals at the 2004 U.S. Olympic Trials in Sacramento, shaved nearly a half-second off that mark in the final when he posted a 48.05 to finish third and make the Olympic Team. Bennie was just unbelievable when you think that his PR (personal record) was 48.80 coming here, said former LSU head coach Pat Henry (now at Texas A&M). Hes one of the finest competitors weve ever had. Brazell turned in another strong performance with his eighth place finish later that summer at the 2004 Olympic Games in Athens. In 2003 Brazell turned in a sensational sophomore campaign in winning three national titles as a member of the Tigers 4x100 and 4x400-meter relay teamshe anchored LSU to its second straight national title in the 4x100 as the Tigers posted the fourth-fastest mark in school history (38.65) at the NCAA Championships. Following a strong season in 2002, Brazell was named the SEC Male Track and Field Freshman of the Year...as a receiver on the 2003 BCS national championship LSU football team, Brazell became the first athlete in school history to win national championships in two different sportsBrazell is a Journalism major at LSU.
