State of the Action

Long Island swept the event Indoors two years ago, and it looks to be another Long Island battle in 2016.  Jyles Etienne and Daniel Claxton are coming in even, after going head-to-head.  The pair have two wins a piece in their four matchups this season, so it is anyone's title for the taking.  Brandon Burke is right there as well in D2, making the fight for the D2 title more exciting than the overall.  Etienne has said he wants over 7ft, and has made strong attempts at the mark, but I am sure any other jumper wouldn't argue seeing a seven atop their PR as well.
