Athlete of the Day: Sawyer Reinhardt

It’s time to celebrate our Athlete of The Day!

Sawyer Reinhardt, nominated by Sports Mama, Melissa Reinhardt, is our Athlete of the Day!

Tell us about Sawyer’s achievement: 

Sawyer has worked for two years to score a point during a basketball game and finally did by making a free throw in his last game of this year.

Tell us about a character trait Sawyer has that you admire:

I admire his determination. He started basketball last year, the first sport he has ever played due to having autism and having to overcome sensory issues. He practiced hard all year, even during the summer he was at the park almost daily practicing. His determination to do his best and not give up even when things were bringing him down is an inspiration to his whole family.

Tell us one thing you want your athlete to know:

Sawyer’s dad, sisters and I couldn’t be more proud of him and look forward to watching and supporting anything he decides to do.

Congratulations, Sawyer!
