The 6-foot, 162-pound senior won the 100-meter dash at the Class 6A state meet this past season with a time of 10.13 seconds, which ranked as the nation’s No. 1 performance among prep competitors in 2019 at the time of his selection. The clocking represents the fifth-fastest 100 in U.S. high school history and is No. 2 in the world among Under-20 competitors. Boling also won the long jump with a leap of 25 feet, 4.5 inches and anchored the victorious 4x400 relay quartet in 3:10.56. His wind-aided, personal-best effort of 9.98 in the 100 this April was the fastest all-conditions time ever by an American high school athlete. It’s also the sixth-fastest wind-aided time in the world among men of all ages. Boling’s season- and personal-best long jump of 26-3.5 ranked No. 2 in the nation this season and is also the U-20 world No. 2. The leap ranks eighth in American prep history.
Boling has maintained a 4.23 GPA in the classroom. He has signed a National Letter of Intent to compete in track and field on scholarship at the University of Georgia beginning this fall.
Boling has served as a counselor at a camp for children with disabilities and has volunteered locally on behalf of Athletes Taking Action, shoe-donation drives for youth athletes in need and hurricane relief efforts, in addition to several other charitable endeavors.
