Shane Farrow, son of Scott and Amy Farrow, is a senior at Brentwood Academy and this week’s Kerr & Co. Realty Athlete of the Week.
He is a member of the Varsity Track & Field Team and competes in pole vaulting and the 4×400 split. This season, he achieved a personal best of 12 feet, 6 inches in the pole vault and ran a 4×400 split in 52.8 seconds.
Farrow joined the track team in fifth grade. He said he was encouraged by a friend whose father had a team.
When asked what inspires him to continue training and competing he said, “I just want to perform well for my team.”
He said his biggest role models are his parents, Scott and Amy, and his older friends that also run track.
He describes himself as funny, competitive and hard working. In his free time, he enjoys fishing and spending time with his friends.
In the fall, he will attend Auburn University where he plans to pursue a professional flight major.
