Javier Edwards is on the cusp of his dreams.

After being the Big Man on Campus at Aldine Davis, a grinder at Blinn Junior College and a defensive anchor at Colorado, Edwards is in position to become a professional athlete.

The 6-foot-3, 325-pound defensive tackle has put in the work to have this opportunity to play in the NFL. He impressed at his recent Pro-Day, giving him hope to have his named called within the top seven rounds of the draft.

"Everyone at this level is big, fast and strong," he said. "How are you going to separate yourself? How strong are you mentally to live out your dream?"

HOUSTON – Matthew Boling is the fastest man in the country.

You read that right.

Not just in Houston or Texas but the United States of America, Boling holds the fastest marks in the 100-meter and 200-meter dash.

"It feels really good, I've been working really hard all year and am really happy with my times," Boling said. "But I am still hungry and know I can do better."

At the TSU Relays this past weekend, the Strake Jesuit senior posted times of 10.22 in the 100-meter dash and 20.58 in the 200-meter dash, which are both personal records.

Boling's 100-meter dash time is 0.24 seconds and his 200-meter dash mark is 0.41 seconds faster than Miami Northland High School's Tyrese Cooper times in each race.

"My goals each meet are to just progress and focus on one thing such as my block starts or drive phase so I can get ready for state," Boling said.
