Sheridan’s Texas Tanner Signs with Air Force for Track
Sheridan High School's Texas Tanner will be enrolling at the Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs in the fall so, in addition to all the duties of being a cadet, he'll be competing for the Falcon track and field program. Tanner placed 5th in the shot-put at the 2021 State Track Meet in Casper back in May with a toss of 50 feet 7 inches. He also made the discus throw event at the state meet but did not have a qualified distance.
Tanner also made his presence felt on the football field as he had 4 carries for 72 yards on offense and 3 tackles on defense as the Broncs won the 4A State Championship over Rock Springs. For the season, he had 34 carries for 266 yards and 3 TDs with 41 tackles on offense, including 5 sacks and 19 tackles for loss.
In addition to those two sports, Tanner competed at the Boys State Swimming and Diving Meet and placed 8th in the 1-meter diving event with 303.5 points.
The Air Force men's track team took 2nd at last year's Mountain West Conference Outdoor Championships.
