Kendall Sheffield broke Ohio State's school record in the 60-meter dash in just his second meet as a member of the Buckeye track team on Friday night.

Sheffield completed the 60-meter dash in 6.63 seconds, the fastest time in the Big Ten and 14th-fastest time in the NCAA this year, to win the 60-meter final at the Buckeye Tune-Up at Ohio State's French Field House on Friday. 

You can watch Sheffield's record-setting run, which topped the previous school record of 6.65 seconds set by Jonathan Burrell in 1995, in the video above.

"It's an amazing accomplishment," Sheffield, who also plays cornerback for the Ohio State football team, told Eleven Warriors after winning Friday's race. "I just give it all to God, and my coaches, Coach Karen (Dennis, Ohio State's head track and field coach) and Joel (Brown, Ohio State's sprinters coach). They push me every day to work on my technique."

Sheffield also recorded the fastest time in the preliminary round of the 60-meter dash, completing the event in 6.69 seconds in his first run of the night, which you can watch below.

Sheffield plans to compete in one more meet this season, next week's Big Ten Indoor Championships, before shifting his focus back to preparing for spring football.

Check back with Eleven Warriors on Saturday morning for more coverage of Sheffield's time on the track.
