AUBURN, Ala. (WTVM) - Auburn High School is getting ready for the AHSAA state track meet in just three short weeks. That’s where you are going to find standout sprinter Charlie Sexton.

Sexton did not join the track team until his Junior year of high school. In fact, he thought that his future plans involved him playing soccer in college. Now, with one season under his belt, he is the 2022 60M dash indoor state champion and is ranked number one in the state for the 100M and 200M dash. He is also a part of the 4x100M relay team that is ranked number one.

Sexton is committed to run track at Auburn University.

“It’s awesome, I didn’t know where I was going to go to college. Wow I get to run for an awesome school and it’s literally right up the street. I still get to put on the Auburn stuff you know,” says Sexton.
