Future Stars: Shaun McCoullum Tearing Up The Sprints

Presenting our newest feature: The Future Stars Series. In this series, we'll take a look at one freshman or sophomore that is making a big impact early in their career, and is showing that they are a star in the making.

This week's Future Star is George Washington freshman Shaun McCoullum.


McCoullum has broken onto the Pennsylvania high school sprint scene in a big way to open up his freshman season at George Washington in Northeast Philadelphia.

McCoullum, who has had some good success at the club level, running a wind-aided 10.84 at the AAU Junior Olympic Games this past summer, has been turning heads this winter already. He currently sits at PA No. 1 in four different sprint events: the 55m, 60m, 200m, and 300m.

The ninth grader went 6.67 in the 55m, 7.16 in the 60m, 22.85 (flat track) in the 200m, and 35.46 in the 300m. His 300 meter time from the Ocean Breeze Freedom Games is an overall PA No. 1 on the season. His 22.85 in the 200 meters earned him the win in the event at the Robert J. Burdette Classic back on Dec. 29.

Watch that race below. It's been a big start to the season for McCoullum and it's a good bet that he's not done making noise in 2022.
