For Pete's Sake

Mizzou freshman nearly matches his height on an amazing box jump

College football practices start this week, but that doesn’t mean the players have been idle.

Case in point: Missouri redshirt freshman defensive back Finis Stribling IV, who attempted a 61-inch box jump last month. It should be noted that Stribling is 5 feet 11 inches tall, making this leap all the more impressive.

Stribling should be able to go up and intercept a few passes.
