      SF CC w/ Simpson and Matson?

      The Vols had Gault and Flowers.

      No Olympians or 9.3 guys there for USC.

      Flowers was a 13.3/9.4 guy.

        I guess O.J's undergrad PB was 9.4 (thus the famous Rose Bowl call by an excited Curt Gowdy during a breakaway).

          Two NFL 9.3 Men

          Do you mean in school at the same time, or period?

          (is Isaac Curtis one of the two, by any chance)?

            Arizona State with Olympians Henry Carr and Ron Brown. My guess is JD Hill or Darryl Clack as the other 9.3 NFLer along with Carr.

            Paul Robinson of the old AFL's Cincinnati Bengals was the 400h/1000 yard man.

            26 foot NFL long jumpers would also include Paul Warfield, James McAllister, Vance Johnson, Eric Metcalf and the late Ron Jessie.

              Picked up by bijanc -
              Roberson
              Lofton

              and by Cullman -
              Warfield
              McAllister
              V.Johnson
              Metcalf

              Ron Jessie jumped (from memory 25'10 3/4 legally and 26'4 3/4w)

              Others are
              Johnny Hector - Texas A&M/ny jETS
              Latin Berry
              Donald Dykes

              Next closest I could pick up were
              Mel Gray (I think he did 25'11 3/4 in 1970)
              Champ Bailey 25'10 3/4

              Very good question Texas

                    I didn't know Boldon went to a JC before UCLA, did he ever run the JUCO champs?

                    Hampton, Edmonson and Deckard I should have known...Lewis and Neal I omitted as not being world class!

                    Has any male 100m runner won JUCOs and then gone on to win NCAAs? I could probably find out if I dug around enough but am hopeful that someone can answer that off the top of their head!

                      First time I saw Ato run (Fresno) he wore the shave head look as a SJCity 200m man. As far as I know he never ran in that JUCO meet.

                      Lewis ran on the Olympic 4x1 team, so he's definately world class. Neal was a sub10.10...hmmm?

                      Not sure about that JCer champ/NCAA champ. Bernard Williams? Anyone know?
