Garrett Kern

Garrett Kern, a 2017 Morton HS graduate sets the local and area standard in the 110M High Hurdles.  Following in the tradition of the legendary Morton HS graduate and U of I former elite athlete, DJ Zahn, Garrett is a versatile athlete and one that consistently works at his sport. For Garrett developing athleticism and meticulous attention to detail is not an option. If anyone thinks that they are simply going to show up and intimidate Garrett by their presence they have another thing coming. With many of the techniques and personalized training that Garrett is receiving through the PICTFC he promises to be at the top of every ticket that he is on long into the future.
