Sr Hailey Pollard from Shadow Creek is a two-time state champion in the discus (6A in '16, 5A in '15) and finished 4th in the state 5A finals for shot put. She was at the Tech game this past weekend.
Anthony Schwartz has plenty of top colleges pursuing him to line up as a wide receiver on the gridiron. The 6-foot, 175-pound Plantation (Fla.) American Heritage standout holds offers from Alabama, Auburn, Florida, Georgia, LSU, Michigan and many other blue-blood football programs.
However, Schwartz is also a world-class sprinter for his age group. As a junior, Schwartz blazed a 10.15-second 100-meter dash, a mark that is sixth fastest all-time for a high schooler.
The plan for Schwartz has long been to play football as well as run track in college. Schwartz has narrowed his list of schools to a pair of traditional football powers, while a third university has him considering just a track career.
“Right now it’s Florida, Auburn, and also I’m looking at Houston, but that will probably just be track if I decide to take that route,” he admitted.
Houston is in the hunt because of nine-time Olympic gold medalist Carl Lewis, who coaches the Cougars sprinters. Lewis recently visited the home of Schwartz.
