The 6-foot-3, 135-pound senior won the 800-meter run with a time of 1:51.72 at the Class 3A state meet this past season, leading the Warriors to the state championship as a team. Durham also ran the lead leg on the first-place 4x400 relay and took second in the 1600. At the New Balance Nationals Outdoor earlier this month, he anchored the 4x800 relay quartet to a silver medal.
Durham has maintained a 3.34 GPA in the classroom. He has signed a National Letter of Intent to compete in track and field on scholarship at North Carolina State University beginning this fall.
A talented musician, Durham has volunteered locally on behalf of Samaritan’s Purse, an international, non-denominational, evangelical Christian disaster relief organization.
