While the NFL Draft stole most of the headlines in the sports world over the weekend, a star was born on the track at the high school level. Matthew Boling, an 18-year-old sprinter, set a new record in the 100-meter dash on Saturday.
Boling had an outstanding performance in two relay events and the long jump, but his best moment came in the 100-meter dash. He destroyed the "all-conditions" record in high schools with a blazing a 9.98-second finish.
Not only does Boling have a record that could stand for quite a while, but he also has one of the best nicknames in sports. The track-and-field phenom is being called "The Boogie Man," which is certainly intimidating for his fellow competitors.
Although the Houston Chronicle is reporting that Boling's performance isn't considered a national record due to the wind aid, it's still an amazing achievement for him.
The video of his all-conditions record over the weekend is going viral, as it showcases his jaw-dropping speed.

Regardless of all the talk about wind assisting Boling during this 100-meter dash, it's impressive to see how easily he won the event.
This might only be the beginning for Boling, who may have held his ground even against Olympic runners.
