Sweet face huh?
My name is Drew. I began high jumping in the 10th grade. By the 11th grade I was jumping 6 feet. In the 12th grade I did not improve and finished my high school career stuck at 6 feet. I competed at the New York State Publich High School Athletic Association Championships at Cicerno-North Syracuse High School in June 2005 and competed in the Small School Pentathlon competition and finished in fifth place (and broke my own school record). From there, I attended the SUNY College at Plattsburgh, New York. After putting some fine tuning on my approach, by May I jumped 6' 5" or 1.96 meters. There was a big change from high school. Lifting was essential to improvement in all aspects. I also found that stretching made a big difference too. I just finished four years of NCAA track and field and 6' 5" has remained my personal record. I was the captain of the track and field team at Plattsburgh for my junior and senior year. Over the years, I was teammates to a few NCAA qualifying athletes in the 10k, 5k, decathlon, open 400m, and 4x400 m relay teams. Some were All-Americans and I was blessed to have them as teammates and all I learned from them in terms of determination, leadership and courage. My coaching has also been vital in my development as a high jumper since I began back in the 10th grade.
