    "Are his football instincts as good as Adoree's?" is the real question. Straight line speed is impressive but not the be all end all. We saw how Adoree was able to move with the ball. THAT was what made him impressive. Can Christon do the same?

    Yep, I've been posting about Boling on another SC board for the past two weeks. The kids new moniker is "White Lightning". Boling also ran a wind aided 9.98 100 meters. That's the fastest time ever recorded for a kid his age. He would make several Olympic teams and he's only been running competitively for 1 year. More impressive, he turns in these times after High Jumping, Long Jumping and running the 200 meter sprint as well. Unfortunately, he's headed to Georgia.

    The answer is NO. Watching tape, Christon is more of a straight line runner and not a lot of jukes.

    Well, let’s not get ahead of ourselves....unless you’re talking the U.S. Junior Olympic team, the Zimbabwe team, and the Iranian team.

    A windy 9.98 ain’t making the U.S. Olympic men’s team ;-)

    It was waaaay wind-aided, 4.2 meters/second. It's unbelievable but not a current No. 2 world time, or a new U20 world lead. Diving deeper, the effort also converts down to 10.16 seconds on a 0.0 wind and 10.07 on a 2.0 plus-wind and at state's last weekend with legal wind, he was between those marks.

    And he's been competitively running for Houston Strake Jesuit since he was a sophomore (relays and 400). This season is his first running the 100. And yes, he's headed to Georgia where he will run track...not play football.

    Another California kid that USC didn’t recruit.

    Do you know that we didn’t recruit him? Or did he just decide to play elsewhere?

    Guidry is a Booin legacy that whose Dad and Uncle played on the same team at UCLA and brother currently plays there. I’d have been really surprised if Javelin had come to USC under those circumstances.

    @CFB Fan

    Ya keeps mixin' up your measurephores there, CFB. Not miles per hour (mph) for meters, its meters per second (m/s) FYI. Me tinks ya got it right on one post but kabloo it on anudder...hehhehheh ; )

    Wind Speed Limits
    [​IMG]In these events, the maximum legal wind assistance is 2.0 meters per second. If the runners of a race receive more wind assistance than this, their times will not be eligible as collegiate, national, or world records. (In high school track events, the wind is usually not measured or considered.) During events like the heptathlon and decathlon, the rule is slightly different. The maximum allowable wind is 4.0 meters per second for any one event, but 2.0 meters per second on average across all applicable disciplines.

    You are correct and I had gone back and corrected it before your post. I was a swimmer and know that I belonged nowhere
    near a track.

    For you non Track and Field fans, below are links where you can look at Christon, Jackson, and Boling's high school times (and anybody else for that matter who runs track). Boling was already a well known 200/400 guy (6th fastest HS 400 in the country last year) with a GA scholarship. Its just for some reason he only started running the 100 this year.

    Christon; https://www.athletic.net/TrackAndField/Athlete.aspx?AID=9337954

    Small side note, if you don't have an account, you'll only be able to view 2019. However, it's free to sign up and well worth it. I've had an account for several years and it's a great stat-keeping site.

    Not trying to derail the conversation, but it has been awhile since we were able to translate THAT type of speed to the football field.
    We have had blazers since AJ2K (Davis/Jones) but struggled to get them the ball within the scheme to use it.

    I hope this Air Raid helps USC utilize that type of speed much better than before.
