I guess "The Goat" wasn't the only leaper playing for Ben Franklin:

Willie Mangham, 17, a senior at New York's Benjamin Franklin High School, broke the 33-year-old city public school high jump mark with a leap of 6 feet 5 inches. Willie, also a basketball player, was making his first jump since the outdoor season ended last June.
