The world Youth record-holder in the 100- and 200-meter dash, the 6-foot, 180-pound senior authored two individual Florida sprint records at the Class 2A state meet this spring, in addition to sharing in a state 4x100-meter relay record to help the Patriots finish second as a team. Schwartz clocked the nation’s fastest wind-legal high school 100 in 2018—10.09 seconds—with his win at June’s Great Southwest Classic. The time ranks No. 4 in U.S. prep history. He also broke the tape in the 200 at the Sam Burley Hall of Fame Invitational in 20.47, which ranked as the nation’s No. 2 time among prep competitors in 2018, and No. 18 all-time. Running the anchor leg of the 4x100 at the state meet, he led American Heritage to the No. 15 time in U.S. prep history as the quartet ran a 40.14. Schwartz capped his prep career by beating a 100-meter field that included collegiate runners to capture a national title at June’s USATF Junior Outdoor Championships with a time of 10.23. He now owns the No. 4, No. 6, No. 8 (10.16), No. 9 (10.17) and No. 13 (10.21) 100-meter clockings in the history of American high school track.
Schwartz has maintained a 3.92 weighted GPA in the classroom and has signed a national letter of intent to compete on an athletic scholarship in both football and track at Auburn University, beginning this fall.
Schwartz has volunteered extensively on behalf of his local Optimist International Club’s football and track & field programs, where he himself began his journey as a youth athlete.
