You might be hearing the name 'McKenzie' a lot in 2021.
That's because two brothers -- twins -- out of Pine View (UT) High School have exploded on to the scene.
If recent weeks are any indication, the pair only seem to be getting more consistent.
This past week, junior Domonique McKenzie won Week 2 honors for National Performer of the Week following his outdoor wind-legal time of 21.33 seconds at the Pine View Invitational, which was fifth-all time in the Utah history books. It's currently US No. 3.
His brother, Marcus, ran the state's fastest recorded indoor time of 21.22 seconds this past winter.
Domonique 'Dom' McKenzie scooped up just over 1,300 votes and a little under 35-percent of the vote.
We're sending a big congrats to McKenzie, and all the nominees for Week 2.
We'll have seven candidates in this week's poll. This week, it's all outdoor. Voting will end Friday, and we'll recognize the winner every Monday during the unveiling of the newest poll.
