Nebraska pole vaulter Jess Gardner is making waves and becoming a social media star.

Gardner, who currently has 96,000 followers on Instagram, could potentially follow in the footsteps of LSU gymnast Olivia Dunne and crush it in NIL deals.

The junior pole vaulter competed in the Big Ten track and field championships last season and posted some solid scores.

Gardner has recently gained traction on Instagram by posting Nebraska pole vaulting content on her page.

Jess is also crushing it on TikTok.

Gardner is currently entering her junior year at Nebraska after earning back-to-back Academic All-Big Ten honors.

Last year, Gardner finished 15th in pole vaulting at the Big Ten Indoor Championships after winning both the Graduate Classic and the Mark Colligan Memorial during the season.
