Lexington, SC (WLTX) --- Thomas Harris understands being the son of a coach can be rewarding. But this senior cross country runner has never used his family connections for anything other than perhaps a ride to school.
His father, Bailey, is the longtime coach who has won state championships in basketball and cross country.
As a runner, Thomas has been driven to succeed and it shows with his All-State selection as a junior in 2012.
However, he is equally as driven in the classroom and that hard work has paid off as he is ranked in the top 20 percent of the senior class.
Thomas is undecided on a college, but he hopes to continue running cross country at the next level.
