Texas A&M signee Gabe Oladipo, a senior at Ft. Bend Hightower in Missouri City, Texas, equaled the all-time state record in the discus with a throw of 215 feet, 2 inches to win the event at the Jesuit-Sheaner Relays held in Dallas this past weekend.

The performance by Oladipo is equal to the 10th best mark on the all-time national high school list and ties him with Brian Robison of Splendora, Texas, who set the Texas state record in 2002. Robison competed in football as well as track and field at the University of Texas and is currently playing in the NFL with the Minnesota Vikings as a defensive end.

This outdoor season has seen a series of career best throws by Oladipo during his undefeated campaign. He started with a 201-9 in February, then had a 206-10 in early March. Two weeks ago Oladipo improved to 211-7.
