Buford High School senior track team member John Elliott takes a backseat to none.
In fact as far as S.C. high school track goes, Elliott is first and that will never change.
Elliott, born with spina bifida, is a handicapped athlete, but he has found a way to compete this season.
He is the first Palmetto State high school athlete to compete in the wheel chair 100-meter dash.
To date, he has competed in five meets, including his debut at Lancaster High School on March 10 where he posted a 50.68 time.
