    I only saw one relay race and the coaches got smoked, the anchor for the players was a tight end type with a pony tail or mullet? Am I missing something?

    There are two videos at the link. Boling is in the second video. Not sure if this was a wise move by Coach Smart. His black starting safety might need to be on suicide watch after being outrun by a honkey.

    Yeah AA, that's what I was kind of thinking and the fact that the safety had a good 5-10 yard head start and still got walked down!

    I predict he will win four golds in the 2024 Olympics, 100, 200, 4 x 100 relay and long jump.

    This is a great video guys. Check it out. This kid just lives to work out and train and with the hard work comes results!

    I've been trying to dig up all of his Pan Am under 2o wins including relay WRs.
    No luck finding the relays at all

    Since what I thought was going to be an MVP year for rb Christian MCcaffrey which looks to now have fizzled I am putting my focus more on Boling here. I don't know if he plans on running indoors but if he does I hope he focuses on the 60 meters and 400 meters especially. A kid with a 44.72 split 400 meter relay time and 10.11 100 meter times could probably challenge Wade Van Neikerks 400 record sooner than later. Michael Johnson was a 10.1 100 meter guy and Jeremy Wariner was a 10.6 at best. Boling has the speed to maybe even run sub 43. This really could happen. I don't see him getting to the NCAA finals in the 60 meters indoor if he runs but he could make the semis and probably top out at 6.55. His 10.11 was an average start at best and twice he almost ran out of his lane taking a couple missteps that pushed him sideways. He probably with a better start and runs exactly straight he could potentially run 10.0x right now. As Ato Boldon said: " enjoy him because you will not see another like him again for a long time. "

    its the 3rd week of the season and you gave up on McCaffery? LOL!
    IMO Boling's strength will be more at the 100, and more so in the 200

    Is it just me, but it appeared that after Matthew had checked each way to see the lead he had, he backed off the gas a little?

    NFL hypocrites talking "player safety" yet demanding these stupid Thursday Night games. Players have come out & said "their bodies are not ready so soon". Most of these early week games have been UGLY! Blessing in disquise last week for McCaffrey that night for his long term health & grind of the season. He answered today with 153 yards rushing (76 yard TD run!)

    Thanksgiving should be the ONLY Thursday games

    NICE VIDEO (previous page) of Boling running down the UGA Football player(starting DB Richard LeCounte) at practice on the anchor leg of the relay; blew past him with ease
