Jordan Geist, from Knoch High School, recently broke the Indoor Shot Put Record for Pennsylvania that was once held by 2013 World Champion Ryan Whiting.
His throw of 69'6.5" not only broke the PA State record, but also ranked him number 9 All-Time for the entire country!
We were able to do a quick shoot in the summer during one of his training sessions. My dad (who was also an All-American), coaches Jordan (an All-American), just as he once coached both of Jordan's parents, who consequently, were also both All-American's. As you probably figured out, that leaves me as the only "non" All-American :)
Some quick stats for Jordan:
- 2015 PIAA Shot Put/Discus Champion
- 2015 Indoor and Outdoor All-American
- 2015 Penn Relays Champion
- Shot Put Personal Record of 69'6.5"
- Discus Personal Record of 186'
He's only a junior in High School, so the sky is the limit!
