PV Track & Field coach goes viral for high jumping videos

BETTENDORF, Iowa (KWQC) – Monmouth native and Pleasant Valley Girls Track and Field coach Kaz Johnson has been high jumping since middle school. However, the St. Ambrose alum didn’t start sharing his jumping ability on a wider scale until he got some encouragement from one of his athletes.

“I was training here, I want to say it was last Summer with one of my athletes and we just kind of set up a series of circuits using hurdles, and one thing led to another and she showed me some stuff on the internet she’s like ‘yeah look at these guys here’ and she just kind of motivated me to go out there and just try it out,” Johnson said.

Kobe Bryant and Giannis Antetokounmpo shakes hands after a game.

Last night, Giannis Antetokounmpo won his first NBA championship, completing a challenge issued to him two years ago by the late Kobe Bryant.

In fact, in the wake of Giannis’ all-time great closeout performance and the Milwaukee Bucks’ first NBA title in 50 years, two of Kobe’s old tweets to the “Greek Freak” are going viral. The first one was from August 2017, when Kobe responded to Giannis asking him for a challenge.

The “Black Mamba” urged him to go win MVP, which Giannis eventually did twice. After his first MVP award in 2019, Kobe assigned another task to the young superstar.

Mission accomplished.

After last night’s game, Giannis spoke candidly about the impact Kobe’s challenges had on him.

“Kobe Bryant thinks I can do
