Houston Strake Jesuit senior Matthew Boling, who became a viral sensation last month after running a 9.98-second 100-meter dash, set a national record Saturday at the Texas state high school track and field championships.

The 18-year-old Boling, who hadn’t competed in the 100 in his high school career until this season, put on a show for the more than 25,000 fans in attendance at Mike A. Myers Stadium at the University of Texas.

“When I looked at the race before us and saw the wind was 1.3 [mph], I was like ‘Oh, I’m excited,'” Boling said. “Because after last week everyone was like, ‘Oh, the wind was illegal,’ and stuff like that. So I’m like, ‘All right, I’ll just drop a fast time today.'”

Boling, who has signed a letter of intent with Georgia, also won the Texas boys 6A long jump title Saturday with a winning leap of 25 feet, 4.5 inches.

Police officers accompanied him throughout the day, anticipating the crush of media and fans, and he mentioned having to turn off social media notifications as his profile rose.

“It’s not as hard as you think [to deal with],” Boling said. “At first, yeah, but then I just got used to it.”

If his record-breaking performance earlier in the evening wasn’t enough, Boling closed out the night in spectacular fashion, helping lift Strake Jesuit to a come-from-behind win in the 1,600-meter relay in the final race of his high school career.

This kid is gold.
