CUNNINGHAM JR. ON THE TRACK
Randall’s father high jumped 6-9 in high school. Randall Jr. passed that a long time ago.
He broke his own Nevada state record by jumping 7-0.25 on his third attempt in May. He then added three inches to that mark in the same meet.
His goal was to break the national high school record of 7-5.75, but fell a little short.
"My goal is to make the 2016 Olympic team," Cunningham said. "It won’t be easy with my football schedule, but I’m definitely going to shoot for it."
He won at the prestigious California invitationals, Mt. San Antonio (7-3) and Arcadia (7-1) and he’ll compete in the Junior Nationals July 22-28 in Greensboro, N.C.
Cunningham, who has also long jumped 21-8, said he’ll likely add sprinting to his schedule next track season to improve his speed in football.
"There's not much Randall Jr. can't do," Sanchez said. "He has a once-in-a-lifetime talent and skill set."
