It's another easy call.

Billy Stanley's huge javelin mark of 246-9 is a record for high school-only competition and trails only Sam Crouser's 2010 national record 255-4 on the all-time list. Stanley edged ahead of Sean Keller of Vancouver, Wash. (244-1) for the new U.S. lead.

Stanley, of South Park (Pa.), hit his big throw at the Pennsylvania Class AAA championships in Shippensburg, Pa. on Saturday. At 5-foot-10 and 190 pounds, Stanley is compact, powerful and quick.

And a throw like the one he had Saturday -- breaking the Class AAA record by more than 22 feet -- could also land him in the Olympic Trials, alongside Keller.
