Hmm... I dunno, man. That is a head-scratcher.

Yeah, that time for someone at his age is not slouch-tastic by any means. Speedy freaking Gonzales still. I have no idea what Egbert is up to... He doesn't come around the area very often.
Egbert wasn't only fast, but strong as an ox as well. Mepo has this system in place where if you bench 100% of your weight you get a white weight-lifting shirt that reads, 100%. 125% is gray. 150% is orange. 175% is red and 200% is yellow. As of 2005 or so (last I knew), there were only 2 people in school history who earned the coveted yellow shirt. Egbert was one of them. The other one was missing a leg. Those yellow shirts are so rare that peoples' jaws would drop when they would see the one-legged guy wearing his. Heck, as of 2005-ish, there were only 5 people in school history who earned the red one (including Egbert and the 1-legged guy). I'm sure there are probably more now. I got that one my Senior year. Benched 325, weighed 160 at the time. I gave both my red and orange shirts to a girl who had me whipped as hell...and she was playing me like whoa. Never got them back.
Yeah, the Mepo track studs around that time were; Aaron Egbert, Neil Egbert, Derek Lipper, Ryan Hassett and Darren Steffener. Not sure if you remember any of those names (besides A. Egbert). Fast motor-scooters.
