Hogs sign top pole vaulter

Which is mainly interesting because he’s from Oxford, Miss., and his brother Sam was a top pole vaulter for the Rebnecks, and remains one of the best USA pole vaulters.

Assume UofA’s great history in track & field had much to do with that. Surprisingly many HS athletes choose to venture out & play their college sports elsewhere from their hometown or home state. Perhaps many seek greener pastures or change in scenery after being bombarded with too much information & pressure to play for their local team.

I would think so. We also just hired a field events coach from Tennessee, although his specialty is more throwing events.
