  • High school junior Scott Sellers clears 7'4"

    Looks like Scott is making very fine progress in the High Jump this year. He's the sophomore record holder at 7'2 3/4 set last year and in Houston (a few days ago) during an all-comers meet he was clean through 7'4". His only misses were at 7'5 1/4 (2.27m). Gail Olson holds the current indoor high school record, but he may not hold it for long. I've never seen him jump, but have any of you? If so, what do you think about him?

      ive seen scott jump on several occasions and the kid is the best. i talked to him at the 1st houston indoor open and he said the trials depend on how the outdoor season looks. so far the indoor looks good (7'4" so far!!) and im going to bet the outdoor will look alot better

        Did you happen to see his jumps at 7'5 1/4"? Was he close?

          He wasn't really close at 7-5.25, but some of his earlier clearances at 6-10, 7-0, 7-2 were easily at the 7-6 level. Don't forget that he also long jumped in the meet. Great talent from a well-run program.

            THE THIRD TRY AT 7'5 1/4" WAS THE CLOSEST WITH HIM KICKING THE BAR MORE THAN HITTING IT. THE CINCO TRACK PROGRAM IS BY FAR ONE OF THE BEST TRACK PROGRAMS IN THE STATE. LAST YEAR AT THE DISTRICT MEET IN HOUSTON HE HIT 23 FEET IN THE LONG JUMP SO IM SURE HE CAN PULL A REPAT MIKE MORRISON ASSULT ON THE HIGH AND LONG JUMP

              For those who only speak metric and find english measure silly, note that 7'4" is one of those heights that doesn't have an "exact" metric translation. It's 2.235.

                I have to amend my original quote. He set the sophomore class record twice. The latter record is actually 7'3.25" (2.21). Everyone talks about Andra Manson's 7'7" (2.31) jump, which was an awesome jump, but I think that Sellers will be able to challenge Andra's record by his senior year. The American junior class is starting to look pretty good.

                        All this and he's still a junior! By the way, how tall is he?

                          I've seen him in person and he's an incredible jumper. I'd say he's about 6'2 or 6'3

                              After the 7-4 on Feb. 6, his three jumps at 7-5 1/2 (2.27m) were not close, but this past Saturday (Feb. 14) he cleared 2.23 and his three at 2.27 were very close - barely nicked the bar with the back of one leg on the 2nd try -- it won't be long!
