Sheri LaBrant and Cole LaBrant are a Mother/Son team on The Amazing Race 28.

After a rather quiet first few legs, they quickly stepped into the spotlight as the underdogs of the season, as they both constantly struggled at challenges with 5th place being their highest finish for the first eight legs, followed by never finishing in the top 2 for the penultimate three legs. Despite their struggles, however, they persevered and never gave up on any challenge, twice completing extremely difficult Detours that other teams tried and bailed on, proving themselves to be much more determined racers than either of them seemed to be like at the beginning of the race. After barely making it into the Final 3 thanks to Burnie & Ashley struggling to find the Pit Stop, they lost a chance at getting a lead over Dana & Matt at the first Roadblock due to Sheri missing the clue on her first jump, requiring her to do the whole task again. Although Sheri got the clue on her second jump, Matt and Dana's lead ended up being too much for them to overcome, and while they managed to pass Tyler & Korey at all of the final leg's remaining tasks, including Cole quickly completing the final memory challenge, they ended up crossing the Finish Line in 2nd place, their highest finish of the whole season.

Notes:


1: Sheri & Cole initially arrived 6th, but were issued a penalty because Cole grabbed four mochilas of two matching pairs. The clue stated only three pairs of mochilas. However, this did not affect their placement, thus it was unaired.[2]


2: Leg 6 had no mandatory rest period between legs, and all teams were ordered to continue racing. Sheri & Cole did not have to face a Speed Bump during Leg 7, despite coming in last during Leg 6.


3: Leg 9 had two Roadblocks and no detour. The team member who sat out the first Roadblock was required to perform the second one.


4: Leg 12 also had two Roadblocks and no detour. The team member who sat out the first Roadblock was required to perform the second one.
