  • EUGENE, Ore. (June 12, 2014) – Rutgers redshirt junior Corey Crawford (Oakland, N.J.) earned his second First Team All-America distinction of the year after taking seventh in the long jump at the NCAA Outdoor Track & Field Championships at historic Hayward Field in Eugene, Oregon on Thursday evening.

    Spending much of the evening jumping into the wind, Crawford finished at 7.47m (24’ 6 ¼”). The junior Scarlet Knight reached the distance on his first jump of the night and was the top competitor out of the second flight of the preliminaries.

    Heading into the finals, Crawford sat in seventh place, where he remained thru the event’s final three jumps.

    Marquis Dendy of Florida captured the NCAA long jump title at 8.00m (26’ 3”).

    Crawford reached First Team All-America status after placing in the field’s top eight. He was also named a First Team All-American during the indoor season as the national runner-up in the long jump.

    Entering the NCAA Championships, Crawford was seeded second and ranked eighth in the country. He had broken the Rutgers school long jump record twice during the course of the outdoor season.  The American Athletic Conference champion most recently broke the Rutgers benchmark with a leap of 7.91m (25’ 11 ½”) in capturing in the IC4A title. He first broke the RU school record in his first place Penn Relays performance at 7.90m (25’ 11”).

    Crawford is the first Scarlet Knight to receive Mid-Atlantic Field Athlete of the Year honors for both the indoor and outdoor seasons by the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA).
