A Heisman Trophy winner and the South Jersey boys discus top-50 all-time performance list!!!

Check out the discus all-time top-50 list. How many former NFL players can you find?

There’s at least five – including a Heisman Trophy winner – who at least made it into an NFL training camp or were on a practice squad and a few who spent significant time in the league. Who can name all five? Maybe there are more … if you find six or more, you’ll get an all-time South Jersey top-50 performance list t-shirt (if there were such a thing).

Tomorrow we’ll continue with the old javelin and then on Thursday the new javelin!

As always, please don’t tweet corrections or omissions because I won’t see them. Send them to me in the comment section and I’ll get ’em corrected ASAP.

    It’s been a long time but if I recall correctly Ron Dayne did that with a rubber practice discus.

    Sean McDole, Ocean City holds the OCHS school record at 174’0”. It was set in 1995.

    If that record toss was the one at Jost Field in South Plainfield he hit a low neighboring fence beyond the sector so it should have been longer

      The 216-11 was actually at Golden West. I remember him hitting that fence, though. That was at Meet of Champions, when he “only” threw 215-3!
