Jermey Scott - Olympian, US National Champ
Believed to be the tallest world class pole vaulter in history, Scott stands at 6 feet 9 inches tall. His breakthrough 2009 season got off to a great start with his win at the USA Indoor Championships in Boston, and he broke the 19-foot barrier for the first time in his career with his winning clearance June 14 in Jonesboro, Ark., when he cleared 5.82m/19-1.25. A letter-winner in three sports in high school (football, basketball and track) Scott enrolled at Allegheny College to play football. After a broken foot as a sophomore caused Scott to focus more on pole vaulting, he decided to enroll at one of National Track & Field Hall of Famer Earl Bell’s pole vault camps in the summer of 2001, and the improvement was immediate. In only the third meet of the 2002 season Scott cleared 17 feet for the first time, which was a then personal best by five inches. The following week he cleared 5.36m/17-7 inches and by the end of that indoor season he cleared 18 feet for the first time and had won his first NCAA D-III national championship. Scott enrolled in a graduate program at the University of Arkansas for his final year of collegiate eligibility where he studied exercise science. Scott’s nickname is El Grande. He received a bachelor's degree in Neuroscience from Allegheny College in 2003.
Scott Houston - 2017 US #2 with 18'11.75"! Highpoint University Pole Vault Coach
Scott is an active Elite vaulter with hopes of qualifying for the next Olympics. He was on a pole vaulting rampage in 2017 that saw him put up his best jumps ever, finishing with a PR of 18'11.75. He is an accomplished PV coach at High Point University. And we are looking forward to cheering Scott on at the US Championships in 2018.
