  • NCAA Jump/Throw Doubler Trivia

    Name the only two men ever to score in the NCAA in both a jump and a throw. Hint, one of them scored in a jump and TWO throws (in the same year). And his son was later an NCAA scorer himself.

        Bill Watson and ??. Rafer sounds like a strong guess.

          Yes, Bill Watson is correct. In 1938 he was 1st in the LJ, 3rd in the SP, 4th in the DT. In '39 he was 4th/2nd/2nd.

          The other guy is not Rafer Johnson or Rory Kotinek. Johnson scored in the 110H and LJ (or, as billthedog would prefer it, the 120H and BJ). Kotinek scored in the HJ and decathlon.

          The guy I'm looking for scored in the LJ, SP and HT (!) in the same year. And his son later scored (=top-8 finish) in the meet, in the LJ.

            Could it be the Merchants, from Cal? Dad was an Olympian in the 1920s and competed in an unusual combination of events. Son John did long jump at Cal in the late 1950s, but not sure if he scored in the NCAAs.

              Indeed, the Merchants.

              In 1922, Jack 4th/1st/1st in the LJ/SP/HT. John 7th in the '56 LJ. Interesting that they jumped almost exactly the same distance: Jack 23-4, John 23-6.
