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

Starting with a poor placement in the first leg, Sheri & Cole always found themselves at the back of the pack, never finishing in the top half of the group until the ninth leg of the race. Struggles with navigation, Sheri's lesser physical prowess, and their shared fear of heights became their biggest weaknesses in the race. Their positivity, courage, and "heart", allowed them to overcome their struggles in the race alongside two Non-Elimination Legs and a U-Turn, sparing them from elimination on multiple occasions. Sheri's courage, mixed with Cole's physical prowess, propelled them to the final leg ahead of Burnie & Ashley as they did not give up in the demanding Commuter Cycle detour. After Sheri failed to retrieve the clue in her first try at the first roadblock of the final leg, the team fell behind Dana & Matt . However, after Sheri's second attempt at the Roadblock was successful, they rose ahead of Tyler & Korey . Paired with Cole's quick finish at the second roadblock, they arrived at the mat in second place, becoming the runner-ups and earning them their highest finish in the entire race.

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