Youngstown State sophomore Chad Zallow was chosen winner of the 2017 Dr. Philip Edwards Award as the outstanding male competitor at this past weekend's Armory Track Invitational meet, the organization announced.

Zallow ran an impressive time of 7.61 seconds to win the 60m hurdles at the Armory National Track Invitational in New York City on Saturday afternoon.

Zallow's time took first against a strong field by 0.25 seconds as he ran away with the victory.

In the process, he lowered his own school record in the event which was 7.69 seconds.

The time sets a USATF Under-19 record in the 42-inch (106.7 cm) hurdles. Zallow broke the long-standing mark in the event that was held by Robert Gaines (Jan. 31, 1976) and Jason Richardson (March 12, 2005).
