Trace Elliott, son of Kimberly and David Elliott, is a senior at Franklin High School and this week’s Athlete of the Week.
He is a member of the Varsity Tennis Team and competes in singles and doubles. This season, he had a 8-0 victory in doubles against East Hickman.
Elliott said he started playing tennis his freshman year with his older brother and has been at it ever since.
When asked what inspires him to continue training and competing he said that watching other people who are better than he is keeps him motivated.
Two of Elliott’s biggest role models are his father, David, and his tennis coach, Coach Scott. He said he respects and looks up to them both for teaching him how to play.
When he’s not on the tennis court, he said he enjoys wrestling.
After graduating from FHS this spring, he plans to attend Western Kentucky University to study Economics.
