Karson Gordon: (Triple) Jumping into History

- - -

At the 2024 Texas Relays, Karson Gordon triple jumped a wind-legal 53-01.50, the furthest jump in Texas high school history. This betters his 2023 PR of 51-05.75, also set at Texas Relays. 

The Houston Episcopal dual-sport athlete has committed to UCLA as a quarterback after decommitting from UNLV. 

The Texas Gatorade Boys Track & Field Player of the Year for 2022-23, Gordon threw for 2,157 yards and 28 touchdowns last season while adding 699 yards and 8 touchdowns on the ground.

The SPC standout has a couple of meets left in his high school career to reach his next goal: 54-00.00. Watching Gordon jump will be a special treat for anyone able to attend the SPC State Track & Field Championships at Greenhill in Addison, May 3-4.
