“Pretty good after my injury. I think I can jump higher, I’m working on it. Just working hard at practice. Doing my drills and working on my jumps,” Gibson said of his performance while helping his teammate.”It’s awesome, I’ve been helping him all week because he really wanted to go to State for high Jump and he got it,” said Gibson.
“It may not be what I wanted (result wise) but at least I worked to it and overcame five-ten, I’ll take it. I’m glad I did it. It may not be the best, but it’s somewhere to start,” adds Crawford. “Just got to keep getting better and get ready for State and see what I can do. I’m going to be working with Randy at High Jump and we’re going to be helping each other with High Jump all week to get there.”
