Unbelievable 17-Year-Old’s 68-Inch Box Jump

June 20, 2013

Must See Football Videos

Class of 2014 running back prospect Chris James of Notre Dame College Prep in Illinois already has multiple scholarship offers from high caliber D-I schools, and if you’re curious as to why, watch the video below.

In a minute and 37 seconds of hyper-athletic insanity, James rifles off some gymnast-caliber Pull-Ups, powers through reps of what might be the world’s hardest Push-Up (look for it at 1:01), and shows off some hops that are just plain unfair. His leap atop what’s purported to be a 68-inch box may not be a bona fide measure of his true vertical, but the results are still impressive. No wonder big-time coaches are lining up to sign this kid.
