Franklin County Senior Profile- Jake Tharp

With the cancellation of the spring sports season, 12th grade spring sports athletes will not get to have their Senior Night.  We wanted to give those athletes a chance to share their Senior Night profiles typically read at such events.  While this can never replace Senior Night itself, at least we can help celebrate our local seniors by sharing their information with you.

Any spring sports senior who would like to have their Senior Night profile shared, please email it to and we will publish it under their spring sport.

Jake Tharp- Franklin County Boys Track

Parent– Chuck Tharp

Sports and activities at FCHS- Track (shot put and discus), freshman football and senior varsity soccer.

Post graduation plans– Attend Indiana Tech to major in criminal justice and also be part of their track team.

Favorite track memory-  My favorite moment was seeing myself and my teammates get better through pushing each other.

What will be missed most from the season being cancelled- What I am going to miss most is seeing myself and my teammates get better and push each other.

Thank yous-  I would like to thank coach Davidson for always seeing I had potential and supporting me, coach Good for always being there to talk to and push me to be my best, and my teammates for always supporting me through good and bad.

A message from FCHS track coach Joe Davidson- Tharp has been so dedicated to this sport.  His hard work has paid off already as he was able to get recruited and signed to Indiana Tech.  His senior year was supposed to be a fun victory lap.  Jake’s wit and charm have always livened up the team spirit.  I will miss his little jokes and ironic comments.  However, I will always remember the good-hearted competitor that he had grown up to be.  Good luck Tharpedo!
