Consider Brian Sehrer to be a jack of all trades when it comes to track and field.
With a versatile skill set, the Happy Valley High School senior signed in front of family, friends, and coaches Friday morning to continue his athletic and educational career at Milligan College next year.
Whether it comes to the track or field events, Warrior head coach Matt Estep said that the Buffaloes are getting a good one when it comes to Sehrer.
“Brian is one of the hardest working kids I’ve ever had on the track team,” Estep said. “Any role we needed him to fill, he’d do it. We had a spot open on the 4×100 team, he ran it, and they made it down to the sectional meet. He’s run the 400-meter for us, which is probably the hardest to run in track. He’s run 4×400 for us, thrown shot put for us; he’s run decathlon for us. They’re getting a very well-rounded athlete that can fill a lot of roles.”
Estep added that Sehrer was a constant leader, often serving as a player-coach for his peers.
When it came to selecting a school, the Warrior new the ‘Buffs would be the right fit.
“I knew that Milligan would be the best place for me,” Sehrer said. “It is a local school, has beautiful facilities and it is a top-notch school and program. I think it would be the perfect place for me to be able to take my talents to the next level.”
And it never hurts to work under a well-renown head coach like Milligan’s Chris Layne.
“It’s awesome,” Sehrer said about working under coach Layne. “He’s taken the program so far since he’s been there. It just keeps getting better and better, and I’m looking forward to being part of that team.”
As Sehrer enjoyed time with his friends and coaches, he had nothing but praise for coach Estep.
“Coach Estep has been amazing,” Sehrer said “He’s been there through everything. He’s really stepped in like my father. The leadership from coach has been great, and he’s just an awesome all-around person.”
The senior also left some words of encouragement for his teammates looking to compete in track and field at the collegiate level.
“You just have to keep working hard,” Sehrer said to underclassmen. “It takes a lot of hard work, dedication, and effort. If you don’t have those, you’re going to have problems. Just be sure to keep up the hard work.”
