Grand Savings Bank Fairland 250

By Travis Sloat

Fairland freshman Cason Rentfrow is one busy 14-year-old. The multi-sport athlete runs the point for the basketball team, pitches for the baseball team, and runs wide receiver for the Owls on the football field. When asked why he loves sports, he had a simple answer.

“I’ve been playing since the second grade,” Rentfrow said. “That’s all I’ve ever known.”

The Owls basketball season is in full swing and coming to a close, and Rentfrow described it as being “up and down.”

“We’re 4-10 right now,” he said. “I think right now we’re trying to show that our record doesn’t matter and that we can hopefully extend our season for as long as we can as a team.”

Rentfrow also said he tries hard to curb any nervousness that a freshman might have stepping into a varsity game.

“Coach usually just tells me to slow it down and play ball,” he said. “I would say I try to stay calm and not let any negativity get to me. I just go out there and do what I’m capable of doing. I think I handle the ball very well, and I can shoot the three ball also.”

Another big aspect of Rentfrow’s game plan is maintaining maturity both on and off the court.

“Inside of sports, I define having character as having good sportsmanship and always being there for your team,” he said. “Outside of sports, I think getting good grades, being the bigger person, and being respectful are all key.”

In his free time, Rentfrow continues to work on his basketball game by going to the gym, shooting, and doing dribble drills. At home he said he’s on the court as well, although this time it’s on his PlayStation.
