David Pretrell[1] "Trell" Kimmons (born July 13, 1985) is an American sprinter.

At the 2004 World Junior Championships in Athletics, Kimmons was part of a Gold medal winning 4×100 meters relay squad that established a junior world record with 38.66 seconds. Kimmons attended Hinds Community College, where he won three individual national championships (200 m outdoor in 2005, 60 m and 200 m indoor in 2006) and set national championship indoor meet records at 60 m and 200 m. He committed to Mississippi State University in November 2005, but chose to turn pro in March 2006.[2][3]

Kimmons finished fourth in the 60 meters at the 2010 IAAF World Indoor Championships with 6.59 seconds. At the 2010 USA Outdoor Track and Field Championships, he won a silver medal behind Walter Dix. At the 2010 Weltklasse Zürich meeting, he ran a new personal best of 9.95 seconds over 100 metres,[4] becoming the 72nd person to break the 10-second barrier.

Kimmons finished second at the 2014 USA Indoor Track and Field Championships in the 60 metres and thus qualified for the 2014 IAAF World Indoor Championships.[5][6]

Also a football player in high school, Kimmons caught 13 touchdown passes and made four interceptions during his senior year.[7] He was rated a two-star recruit by Scout.com. He is also a bigger "trell" than West Coast Eagles AFL footballer Matthew "The Human Mop" Priddis.
