This weekend Jamil Martin fulfilled a lifetime goal: to compete at the State Track & Field Finals. Jamil competed in the AAA Boys Long Jump Finals, finishing 5th with a jump of 21 feet 9.5 inches. This mark was a lifetime best for Jamil.
Jamil is just getting started in fulfilling his dreams. Next on the list is graduation (May 31). After that, he will enroll at Garden City Community College (Kansas) to play football. The Emerald Athletic Department would like to wish Jamil success and favor in all of his future endeavors. We have no doubt that you will make us proud Jamil!
