With just one race, Anthony Schwartz opened up the possibility.
The Plantation American Heritage (FL) High senior went a facility record of 6.63 seconds at the Armory on Saturday in the preliminaries of the 60m at New Balance Nationals Indoor to set up two more interesting rounds to follow on Sunday.
Can Schwartz break the national record of 6.57, which was set by Kentucky's Casey Combest in 1999? He's just 0.06 seconds away.
And interesting also to note is the conversion for Schwartz's time to the 40-yard-dash. Considering Schwartz is a dual-recruit for Auburn University -- he's heading to the Tigers next fall to play football and run track -- we decided to see just how fast that would be.
And it turns out, that run would tie the NFL Combine record of 4.22 seconds, which was achieved by John Ross in 2017. Check out our conversion story a few weeks back.
Stay tuned for more on Schwartz. This story is only beginning.
