MileSplit Boys POW Poll Winner Interview Jacob Dorrell

Jacob Dorrell reacts mid-air during a big clearance

Denton Guyer senior pole vaulter Jacob Dorrell is having himself quite the season in his signature event. While under the tutelage of his club team Texas Express, Dorrell has been traveling all over the state and across the country to compete.

The competitions have led to him turning out personal best performances all indoor season long and those jumps are resulting in some rewarding personal gains. At the Texas Tech Under Armour High School Classic, Dorrell cleared the bar set at 16-0.75 for a new personal best. 

That clearance also earned him a spot in our Boys Performer of the Week Poll last week. He won the poll and that turned into another opportunity for him by materializing into an interview with MileSplit to discuss his performance, his training, a few questions about him, as well as his future plans.

Dorrell's hard work and the fruits of those labors have also resulted into an athletic scholarship to North Texas University for an opportunity to continue his student-athlete pursuits.
