The 5-star football talent out of Archbishop Carroll (MD) didn't have a hard time transitioning to the track.

In his first competition of the indoor season at The VA Showcase after a fall football slate, Nyckoles Harbor made a big statement. Not only did he win the 300m invitational section, but he clocked a nation-leading 33.90 en route to that first-place finish.

Harbor also helped the Archbishop Carroll 4x200m relay squad to a 1:26.42 effort for US No 4 all-time.

That sensational season opener at The VA Showcase earned Harbor National Boys Performer Of The Week honors in the six poll of the season, taking home 33-percent of the vote.

But it's safe to say that the week seven poll features some of the best boys performers yet of the 2023 indoor season. During a week of meets that producing numerous all-time performances from the 200m up to the 2-mile, athletes certainly put together impressive resumes to earn nominations for the latest weekly performer honor.

Vote below for your National Boys Performer Of The Week from meets contested Jan. 16 - 22.
