Oxford’s Kendricks signs with Ole Miss

A career of hard work and the constant drive to reach even greater heights has resulted in another new opportunity for Oxford High’s Sam Kendricks. The standout pole vaulter, who won the state championship this past season and recently ascended to No. 15 in the nation in the demanding event, was rewarded with his consistent progression with a scholarship from Ole Miss and track coach Joe Walker. Kendricks signed with the Rebels on Wednesday, the earliest a Charger has ever signed a track offer in school history.

Ever since Sam Kendricks’ father and coach, Scott Kendricks, told him that he thought competing in the pole vault would be suit his talents best, Sam has been dreaming of joining the Ole Miss team where his father competed under Walker’s direction. (February 3, 2011, Page 6)
