Despite only competing in the long jump for a few years, Reagor seems to be a natural. He won with a jump of 24 feet and 5 inches. Reagor also holds the nations’ longest long jump of the year, with a 26-foot jump at the area meet. He’ll compete again with another TCU signee, Kennedy Snell, in the 4x100 and 4x200.

His weekend is not done on the track. He also will run in the 4×100 relay and the 200.

Among those congratulating him was his father, Montae, who played nine seasons in the NFL.
