Hot HS Athletes: Ted Lampkin Looking Large
Hot Athletes Inside
Chris Reed – The Omaha Central heavy duty thrower pumped out a 60’ 2” shot throw at the Burke Relays on Monday. According to an excellent Omaha World-Herald article written by Stu Pospisil (click here to read article), Reed is looking to break the shot put records held by former Omaha Central and Iowa University great, Larry Station. Much respect to Reed if he can accomplish the feat. Station was not only a tremendous shot and discus thrower in high school, he was also one of the very best football players to ever come out of Nebraska. Last fall, the hard hitting linebacker was honored as one of Iowa University’s all-time greatest football players.
Ted Lampkin – This Eagle may be the hottest athlete in Nebraska: This past winter Lampkin ran a head-turning and eye-wiping 4.37 40 yard dash at the U.S. Army Combine. Soon thereafter he received offers from Iowa State and Kansas State. Lampkin is just warming up; he popped a 45’ 9” triple jump at the Burke Relays. There is no telling how far he can jump if he is already hitting nearly 46’ this early in the season. One thing for sure– Lampkin is positioning himself to become the No. 1 Nebraska high school football prospect in the class of 2011.
Amanda Brown — The senior from Lincoln Southwest leaped 5’ 6’ to take the high jump blue ribbon at the Nebraska Wesleyan Indoor Invite. Brown finished fourth in Class A at the State Meet last year with a jump of 5’ 4”. Oh, the winning jump was 5’ 6”. Brown looks to be the leading contender for Class A gold in the high jump.

I was at the Millard North Relays today, and Teddy Lampkin broke the meet record in the long jump. He went 23’9. He looked superb. He is setting some great marks very early in the season.

Looks like the kid is the real deal! It will be interesting to see how much improvement he can make. The Long jump and triple jump are finicky events–up and down performances all over the place. The good ones are able to be rather consistent and make improvements over time. Time will give a good indication of just how good a jumper Lampkin is.
