Currently US #8 and just inches away from the US lead is senior Chauncey Chambers. He has jumped 48-9.75 this season and realistically could jump well over 50' with just one great jump. That is the best thing going for him now is that he will ideally have six attempts to bring home the national title.
The current top seed is Kevin Snyder of Christ School (NC) seeded at 49-9. This competition will come down to capitalizing on the big moments and taking slight risks on the runway and toe-board for that big mark.
