Jamil David McClintock '04
Champion Hurdler Recognized for his Dedication to the Sport One of the most talented and versatile runners ever to grace the Pingry track, Jamil McClintock continually refined his natural abilities through perseverance and hard work. During high school, Jamil earned four varsity letters in men’s track, serving as captain of the team his senior year. At the 2004 NJ State Meet of Champions, Jamil won the 110 meter high hurdles, becoming the first Pingry athlete since 1992 designated as a Meet of Champions’ champion in track and field. Two-time qualifier for the national high school track and field championships, in 2004 Jamil was named 1st team All-Conference, All-County, All-Area, and All-State, and was further honored as NJ State Hurdler of the Year. Best known for the 110HH, an event for which he set five Pingry records, Jamil also demonstrated tremendous versatility as an athlete, claiming a varsity letter in football, setting the school high jump record, and winning the long jump the first time he competed in the event. Jamil continued to run track at Brown University, garnering four varsity letters and serving as captain of the men’s track team for three years. He received the team’s Freshman of the Year award and won the Coaches’ Award for Most Outstanding Athlete in his junior year. In 2007, Jamil was the #1 ranked Ivy League hurdler and a member of the national All-Academic team. He set Brown University records in the 110HH, in the 60HH, and as part of the 4x200 record-setting relay team. An inspiration off the field, Jamil is an active volunteer with NJ SEEDS, and he provides pro bono legal counsel to several non-profits in the San Francisco Bay area.
