Donte Nall's win was hardly unexpected. After all, the senior from
Chapel Hill High School in Douglasville, Ga., was the lone seven-footer in this
year's Nike Outdoor meet.
What did raise a few eyebrows was the tenacious challenge by Darrell Roddick of
Fort Dorchester High School in Charleston, S..C.
Roddick came in with a best of 6-7. When Nall took two attempts at 6-6.25,
Roddick – who needed one attempt – found himself atop the standings. Both
cleared 6-8.25 on their first tries. When the bar reached 6-10.25, Nall's
experience came through. Nall sailed over the bar on his first jump, while
Roddick needed three attempts.
Both missed on all three jumps at 7-0.25 to end the competition.

Justin Frick (Freehold, NJ), a Princeton signee, and Justin Oliver (Pennsauken, NJ) tied for
third place at 6-8.25.
“I didn’t know what to expect,” said Nall, “because I had a bad pain going
through my knee, and I’ve been thinking about it since I got here on Thursday.
But I couldn’t let that stop it. I had to do my thing. I just focused. I
couldn’t come out here and have it on my mind. You have to do what you know you
can do and let things happen the way they happen.

“ My junior year I pulled my hamstring, so it took me some time to get my confidence
back. On May 1 in Mobile I jumped seven feet and I knew I was back from there.”
Nall plans to enter North Carolina this fall..
