Today's Athlete of The Day Sponsored By ·
Athletes Against Anxiety and Depression Foundation
Augustana College Vikings
What do you want to celebrate about your athlete?
During the quarantine, all fitness equipment was sold out. If my son were at school, he would be working out with his team multiple times per day. He did not want to fall behind, so he found plans for a squat rack he and his dad could build. It turned out beautifully. He will be able to work out as much as he feels he needs.
He has persevered. In the face of adversity, he chose to find a way.
"We are very proud of him. He is a hard worker. When he puts his mind to something, he finds a way to get it done. Even in difficult circumstances."
What life skills do you see your athlete learning through sports?
Resilience is a skill. The more he works at overcoming, the more resilient he becomes.
What is a character trait your Athlete has that you adore?
He never gives up. Once he has an idea in his head, he will keep pushing until he figured out how to get it done.
Besides sports, what does your Athlete aspire to be?
He will be a business person. He is always thinking about business.
Tell us one thing you want your athlete to know.
His dad and I are very proud of him. He is a hard worker. When he puts his mind to something, he finds a way to get it done. Even in difficult circumstances.
