Six UIL classifications.

Approximately 1,100 schools with a volleyball program.

If each school has, say, 10 players on its varsity roster (most teams have 9-15 players), that's 11,100 volleyball-playing student-athletes.

Good luck trying to identify about 250 of the best players in that pool of 11,000-plus.

Okay, enough of the dramatics. But you get the idea of what we were working with as we proudly announce the First Annual K-MAC Sports/VYPE Media All-State awards.

Butch Hart, whom I consider the Godfather when it comes to coverage of Texas High School girls' athletics (he's only been doing it since 1983), was nice enough to work with me on this list.

We're very thankful we received some knowledgeable input too. We'd like to thank the Texas Girls Coaches Association (TGCA); Felix Chavez of the El Paso Times; and a handful of coaches who wish to remain anonymous, all of whom provided input (stats, information, opinions) that helped us form the awards you see here.

We had one rule when we set out to make these awards: no restrictions or politics; no regards to number of schools (or their locations) included, no regards to graduation date – nothing. We just set out to name The Best of the Best.

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.
