Watkins is a two-time UIL 6A state sprint champion and he has already run times of 6.73, 6.75, 6.81, and 6.84.
Finley's two runs on Sunday of 6.74 and 6.61 now put him in the upper echelon of sprinters nationally. With national championship meets a month away, this will make him a favorite.
The experience of placing third at last year's Texas UIL 5A state championships in the 100m and a 10.39 personal best from the summer's AAU Junior Olympic Games is key for a high level sprinter.
However, this performance could add another key trait for a championship level sprinter - - confidence!
