Montverde Academy's (FL) Issam Asinga has gotten off to a historic start this outdoor season.

At the premiere Florida Relays last weekend, the recently-crowned indoor national 200m record holder posted one of the top times in U.S. high school outdoor history at 100m. He logged a wind-legal 10.10 (1.0) winning effort to move to US No. 6 all-time in the event.

Asinga now only sits a tenth of a second behind Trentavis Friday's national record of 10.00 from 2014.

And that all-time effort from Asinga earned him National Boys Performer Of The Week honors, earning 37-percent of the overall vote in the second poll of the outdoors season.

This week's poll features even more all-time performers as competitors surged up the rankings in the history books after a thrilling week of action on the track and in the field.
