    Pretty sure the progression went:
    Bill Nieder (Lawrence, KS)60' 9.25" May 16, 1952
    Leon Patterson (Taft, CA) 60' 9.75" May 24, 1952
    Don Vick (Chaffey, Ontario, CA) 62'5.25" 1953
    Dave Davis (Canoga Park, CA) 62' 7.5" May19, 1956
    Ray Locke (Barrington, RI) 62'7.75" May24, 1956
    Homer Robertson (Pacific, San Bernardino, CA)
    63' 9.5" June 2, 1956
    unless Robertson threw one earlier to beat Davis and Locke to Vick's record (very possible)
    Clark Branson (Pasadena, CA) 64'0.75" 1957
    Dallas Long (North, Phoenix, AZ)3 times in 1958
    66'1.5" March 8,
    67' 2" April 12
    69' 3" May 16
    Karl Salb (Crossett, AR) 69' 7" 1967
    Sam Walker (Samuel, Dallas, TX) several times in
    1968 ending up at 72' 3.25"
    Michael Carter (Jefferson, Dallas, TX) several times in 1979 ending with 81' 3.5"

      Thanks for the list! I always though that Leon Patterson was the first to go over 60 feet although both he and Bill Neider did it in the same year.

        Robertson might have been the first 60-footer earlier in the season. I just have their season's best.

          Homer Robertson could not have been the first over 60 feet as he made his best mark in 1956 while Patterson and Neider did it in 1952

              April 19, 1951, Bakersfield--Patterson 60-0.25, breaking Darrow Hooper's 59-10.

              Patterson was T&FN's prep AOY the year before, throwing 59-2.5 as a junior.

                shouldn't that be April 19, 1952?
