Jeff Bray was considered one of the finest pole vaulters in the history of high school athletics in the U.S. over his career in Elks City, Oklahoma. He proved his prep career was no fluke earning All-America honors and posting FSU records that have stood since he left the program.

Florida State competed in the Metro Conference during Bray's freshman season in 1991 and he won the conference championship that year. Florida State switched conferences in 1992 and Bray dominated the ACC over the next three years. He was the ACC indoor and outdoor champion in 1992 and 1993 and the conference's outdoor champion again in 1994. He is considered the finest pole-vaulter in ACC history and was named a member of the 50th Anniversary ACC Indoor Track and Field Team in 2003.

Bray competed at nationals six times, earning All-America honors three times over his Seminole career including a 3rd place finish Indoors in 1992.

He still holds the ACC and FSU records in both the outdoor (18-6.5') and indoor (18-0.5') pole vault, records that were set more than 16 years ago.

Jeff Bray's dominance of his event has earned him a place in the FSU Hall of Fame.
