Peyton Carr knows the value of hard work and perseverance, and he learned this priceless lesson from his father, Henry. Henry Carr excelled in track and field, basketball, and football in high school. At Arizona State University, Henry played football for one season before focusing on track and field. His coach at ASU, Baldy Castillo, called him “the best track man, sprinter-wise, I ever coached.”
Henry sprinted to gold-medal glory in the 200-meter race at the 1964 Tokyo Olympics, setting an Olympic record of 20.3 seconds. He also helped the United States team win the 4 x 400-meter relay, scoring yet another gold medal and setting a world record of 3 minutes, .7 seconds. In 1965, Henry was drafted by the New York Giants and was a safety and cornerback, using his speed to the team’s advantage for three seasons before a knee injury sidelined his sports career.
Henry was inducted into the ASU Athletics Hall of Fame in 1975 and into the National Track and Field Hall of Fame in 1997. Of the latter achievement, Henry said humbly, “I’m very grateful I’m alive to receive this honor.”
All of Henry’s hard work, dedication, and commitment paid off handsomely, and that was not lost on his only son, Peyton. These traits were instilled in Peyton at a young age, and his business philosophy of providing superior customer service and treating clients with fairness and integrity is a direct result of his father’s influence.
