A native of Mechanicsville, Virginia, Pillow highlighted day two at the Texas A&M Invitational by winning the pole vault with a personal best mark (indoor or outdoor) of 5.51m (18-1.00) Saturday afternoon to break the Gilliam Indoor Track Stadium record. 

Pillow topped his previous career-best mark of 5.50m and his height is now tied for the seventh-best in the NCAA and tops amongst all C-USA competitors.
