Fast company

Kearns sprinter Jarvis Andrews has topped out at 11.2 seconds in the 100-meter dash and could be a contender at state next month. Andrews grew up in Mississippi, and before moving to Utah, he briefly lived in a car with his mother. The senior now lives with a former teammate, Andre Juarez, who graduated from Kearns last year.
