Is he Kenyan? He'll fit in well at the Clown College with 30 yo cheese. Like Malmö said, I was a sophomore in college at 19.
Ddi he get left back or start school late?

German Fernandez ran 3:55.02 at 18 years 2 months as a college Freshman. American 19 year olds run 3:59, 3:42/41 every year. Factoring in that he was running 80-90 miles a week during the fall makes his time even less significant.
That's just the minimum age. You're right, most high school seniors turn 18 senior year, but there are a few that turn 19. The kid is legitimately in high school.
Before this thread gets any further, I'd just like to put this here:
The VAST majority of states (almost all in fact) require that a child turns 5 right around the start of the academic year (August - Oct.) when entering Kindergarten.
When extrapolated down the line, this means that provided they started Kindergarten at the appropriate time and did not skip any grades in between, almost all high school seniors should turn 18 either right at the start of or during their senior year.

What a bunch of whiners. HS times are set by HS students, EoT. If you don't link it the work to get the rules changed so that only age 15 can be Freshmen, age 16 Sophomores, age 17 Juniors, and age 18 seniors. If your are 17 and a Senior your times count as Junior times.
