BOZEMAN -- Bozeman’s Luke Fedyk may look like other high school football athletes, but he’s built much different.

Fedyk, who is 6-foot-1 and 210 pounds, clocked an incredible 22.5 miles per hour on a treadmill.

“I never really knew I could run that fast on there," said Fedyk. "I’ve been training and doing stuff like this for years. I have been blessed with the ability to run fast.”

To put that into perspective, back in April Buffalo Bills super star wide receiver Stefon Diggs ran 23 miles per hour on a treadmill. Diggs is nine years older and 20 pounds lighter than Fedyk.

The fastest run in the NFL in 2019 was 22.3 miles per hour by Matt Breida, according to the NFL.

“It blows me away a little bit," Fedyk smiled. "Obviously I didn’t know it was something I had the ability to do. It takes a lot of work to a point where you can push it that hard.”

Fedyk, a defensive end, is going into his senior season at Bozeman High School this fall. He has been training for years with Matt Ulrich, who won Super Bowl XLI with the Indianapolis Colts.

With Fedyk's type of talent, there’s no telling how far he can take the game.

“I don’t look too far ahead into the future," he said. "But I’m hoping that as I continue my career, I can keep maximizing my abilities and keep learning and keep enjoying the football experience.”
