After his first pole vaulting practice, James Courson came home and told his mother that he was going to do it every day for the rest of his life.
The recent Hoover High School graduate is well on his way.
Courson started pole vaulting his freshman year of high school, close to four years ago. He started it because an older friend had always tried to get him into it in middle school. As high school began, Courson decided to try, and it has been a tremendous decision.
