Default Darrell Griffith record setting hops

At one point in time Darrell Griffith held the Guinness Book Of Word records title of having the highest vertical leap of a measured 48". Found some pictures, I thought I'd share.



In an international game in 1976, High School senior and future University of Louisville Cardinal great Darrell Griffith casually jumps over a Polish player , who happened to be in his way... (Ck out the Louisville Sports Scrapbook section tab at the top of the home page. Pic contributed by Charlie Springer at Card Game.)







I tried to buy this poster from a shoe store that was going out of business, when I was a kid. The guy told me it wasn't for sale.

Too bad he couldn't hold Hansen's jock on the floor though. LOL!
