2017 Alabama wide receiver signee Henry Ruggs III is known a speedster, but this news will have Alabama fans even more excited to get him on campus.
At the AHSAA track and field championships on Saturday, Ruggs not only won the 100m dash, but he also set a state record in the event. His time of 10.58 was good enough for a record at the 7A level, the highest in the state of Alabama.
