Jay Panther - Skier & Beach Volleyball Player
Jay Panther started skiing when he was four and competing when he was six. From age six to twelve he competed in both ski racing and freestyle. The at age twelve he became the youngest athlete to ever be invited to Nationals for Moguls and Aerials. Unfortinately, after that season his family moved to Louisville, KY and he was prematurely removed from the one thing he truly loved -- skiing.
In Kentucky, Jay was first team all-state in baseball. He also played varsity football and soccer for Ballard High School. He was a National Merit Scholar and was named the Wendys National High School Heisman winner for the Achievements as a student-athlete. Following high school, Jay was awarded a full scholarship to Vanderbilt University where he played baseball his freshman season.
Jay says he had dreams of being a U.S. Team Freestyle skier and representing his country in the Olympics. "I loved Vanderbilt, but my desire to ski again were too strong so left school and moved to Lake Tahoe, NV after seven years without a day on skies. In 2011, his dreams came true when he made the U.S Ski Team!
Although Jay's passion for skiing is unparalleled, he also enjoys beach volleyball, which he discovered late in life and is now a AA rated two man tournament player with aspirations of the AVP. He also enjoys skate boarding, weightlifting, rock climbing, mountain biking, golfing, and jumping on the trampoline. Currently, Jay is a student at Liberty University where he holds a 4.0 GPA as a Finance major. During the winter, when he is not training for competition, you will find him in the terrain park at Park City Mountain Resort, at Snowbird searching for the biggest lines possible, or carving GS turns down Deer Valley.
Jay has also recently started a Perseverance Tour, which we had him explain to us earlier this year.

Jay Panther earned himself the prestigious place on the 2011 U.S. Freestyle Ski Team on Tuesday, December 22, 2010. Panther finished 2nd overall at the two day U.S. Ski Team 'Selection' Event in Steamboat, CO. With a 6th place finish on Sunday, December 19th, the pressure was on for Tuesday's competition. It was a nail-biting, 11th hour adventure - Panther's equipment was missing the morning of his first round on Tuesday. He managed to find his skis, however he couldn't find his poles. Borrowing his coaches' poles, he rocketed onto the 1st run qualifying course:
"Panther broke his pole halfway through the qualifying run. He was ripping, skiing awesome, when all of the sudden he had a serious bobble. He recovered and 2 turns later had another little bobble. Then he ripped the rest of the run and hit his bottom air perfectly balanced. He crossed the finish line, held up his right pole and 1/2 of it was gone. The bobbles had come at the break and when he instinctively tried to plant the pole again. The way he adjusted is quite a tribute to his strength and athleticism". (Source: L.J. Panther, Jay Panther's father)
Finishing 11th on his 1st run, Jay was steadfast to win his 2nd run. Borrowing another set of poles from his coach with nothing to lose, filled with sheer grit and white knuckle determination, Jay skied flawlessly taking 2nd place on his 2nd run which earned him the last spot on the U.S. Freestyle Ski Team.
Jay graduated from Ballard High School in Louisville, Kentucky, where he won the Wendy's High School Heisman Trophy, was a Coca-Cola Scholar and also an 8 time first team academic all-state winner, as well as a President's Scholar. Jay went to Vanderbilt on a full scholarship and played baseball his freshman year before leaving to head west to compete again.
In the fall of 2010, Panther also received his "A" level beach volley card to compete professionally next summer when he can't get to the snow. This past summer he was in Louisville, Kentucky to compete in the "Old School Side OutTournament" along with other AVP stars and local athletes.
Jay is now a member of the U.S. Freestyle Ski Team. He has won International events and defeated Olympic Champions and looks forward to competing in the 2014 Winter Olympics.
