Dillon Lookout was in trouble.
He was the last one to jump in the 6A state championship boys pole vault finals and didn’t even have to make the leap, but he wanted to.
He missed the first two jumps and on the third he tucked his pole under his right arm, charged and threw his body over the pole.
“On his third jump if he would have missed it he would have gone home,” said Lookout’s grandfather Mike Jones. “He (Lookout) took a deep breath and said a prayer.”
