A wealth of talent returns in the boys' long jump this spring, as 23 boys come in with best jumps over 22 feet from last year. Five of those had jumps of 23 feet or better, and after a big indoor season, we can add even more to that list.

Let's start in AA, where Brendan Sparr of Schuylkill Valley will be shooting for his third consecutive state title. The senior always jumps well outdoors when the stakes are the highest and he'll be gunning for the three-peat. But he'll have his fair share of challengers, including John Reichenbach of Salisbury Township (above). He pulled out a career-best jump of 23-05.5 at the District 11 Championships last year. He was sixth at states. There's also Dock Mennonite's Austin Kratz, the sprint specialist who can jump really well. He was third at states last spring in the long jump.

Two other AA boys to watch for are Dantae Ranieri of Hopewell and Julian Fleming of Southern Columbia. Both missed out on the medals at states, but registered jumps of 23 feet or better last season. Fleming was just a freshman. Josh Volak of Palisades (seventh) and Jeremy Clark of Wilmington (eighth) are among the other AA medalists that are back this season.


In AAA, it should be a close battle for the top spot. Ayden Owens of North Allegheny has the best returning jump from last year. The senior jumped 23-05.75 to win the WPIAL title last spring. He placed seventh at outdoor states, in what was a very busy meet for him (he swept the hurdle races at Ship). This indoor season, he leapt to a second place finish at states. Look for him to be gunning for LJ gold to close out his career.

But Edner Dorwil of George Washington (above) is coming off indoor gold, beating out Owens for the win by a mere quarter inch. The senior was consistently in the 22 feet range all winter and that should bode well for him in his quest for an outdoor first place medal at states. Lower Merion's Romaine Rhoden jumped 22-08.25 at states last spring to take third place. Expect him to be a factor this season. Wissahickon's Ahmir Johnson, Scranton's Ky'ron Harbin, Conestoga Valley's Jose Barbon, and Coatesville's Eric Kirk are among the other boys that should be serious contenders this season in AAA.

Kyle Garland of Germantown Academy headlines the PAISAA boys field of long jumpers. He leapt 23-2 last spring and actually matched that during the pentathlon at indoor nationals. Garland is a terrific talent and we should expect some big jumps this spring.

Watch an interview with Dorwil after winning the indoor state title and check out the top 500 returners in the boys' long jump below:
