The 6-foot-3, 160-pound senior won the 400-meter dash at the prestigious Brooks PR Invitational this past season with a state-record time of 46.24 seconds. That personal-best clocking ranked No. 2 in the nation among prep competitors in 2019 at the time of his selection. Bynum initially set the 400-meter state record at the Division 1 Large State Meet—he broke the tape in 46.60 to eclipse a record that had stood since 1970. He also won the 100- and 200-meter dash at the state meet, leading the Tigers to a second-place finish as a team.
Bynum has maintained a 3.60 GPA in the classroom. He has signed a national letter of intent to compete on an athletic scholarship at the University of Tennessee beginning this fall.
Bynum has volunteered locally with the Leaders of Tomorrow mentoring program.
