Harrison, who hails from Huntsville, Alabama, was named the National Men’s Field Athlete of the Year. He continued dominance of both the high jump and long jump during the 2021 outdoor season, capped by his third consecutive sweep of those events at the NCAA Indoor or Outdoor Championships. Harrison left his name all over the all-time chart in 2021, matching the second-best performer in collegiate history in the high jump at 2.36m (7-8¾) – which came on a perfect 7-for-7 outing at the SEC Outdoor Championships – and moving up to No. 6 on the all-time chart in the long jump at 8.44m (27-8¼). He only lost once during the outdoor season.
