Raymond Bozmans says he's just trying to have fun right now. Even he finds that the success he's having on the track is hard to believe.

"The fastest runner, arguably, is right here in Fort Collins, Colorado, some small city. It's crazy," Bozmans told 9News.

According to Dystat, Bozman's time of 10.41 seconds in the 100 meter dash is the second fastest high school time in the country.

Nnobody has posted a faster time than his 20.87 seconds in the 200 M.

"I knew I was right on the verge. I just had to finally show it and since then I've got the confidence now," said Bozmans.

"He's working for every inch that he's gaining. So that's kind of special," Fort Collins Track Coach Conrad Crist told 9News.

Crist credits Ray's dedication to improving. But here's the best part. Bozmans isn't doing it for himself. Ray wants a team state title far more than any individual accolade.

"I know I'll have more success as I go on in my career. Where this will be the last time I run for Fort Collins High school in my life," said Bozmans.

After this year's run at a state title, Ray is headed to compete for Texas Christian University. And he says the 2016 Olympic games are definitely on his mind.
