Dexton Crutchfield - 5'8" Kid With INSANE Bounce
Dexton Crutchfield is nothing short of amazing. What makes Dexton so special? Imagine having the ability to jump over pretty much anything. Standing at nearly 5'9", he is a modern-day superhuman with a whopping 48 inch(4ft) vertical. Let me put this into perspective, the average male has a vertical jump of 16-20 inches and for those who are even highly athletic still only have an average verticle of 2 feet. That is less than half as high as what Dexton can do.
Dexton got his name into the media when he started posting videos and photos of his astonishing jumps on his Instagram page last November. Within just one year he has gained over 208,000 social followers and built a reputation around his massive hops.
Most people show off their jumping skills by dunking on basketball rims. Dexton Crutchfield does that, and much more. The video to the right is a combination of clips from Dexton's personal Instagram account that have gone VIRAL. Each video is of him doing INSANE jumps over anything from people to parking lanes to small pools. His social presence has grown so big, so fast, he was recently contacted by Iowa Western offering him a full-ride college scholarship so he could participate on their track and field team.
Dexton, motivated by Iowa's recent offer and his astonishing abilities, doesn't only have his goals set on college, but his dreams reach as far as competing on an Olympic level.
