Sawyer Howitt is a senior at Lincoln High in Portland, Oregon. He is a very dedicated racquetball player who has committed himself to doing his very best in this sport. There are a number of tips to achieve success in this sport much as Sawyer Howitt has done.
If someone wants to become a professional at anything, including racquetball, it is important to put in the time to thoroughly research the field. You need to make sure this is something you will be motivated to do and what your reason is for playing the game. If one is just playing to stay fit and have fun they will have a very different view of what motivates them vs. someone who seeks to make money playing the game. Once you’ve determined your motivation you can put a plan in place in order to achieve your goals. If you plan to play the game professionally, you will need to develop a daily training program that you will stick to in order to see a long-term improvement in your game.
To become a professional racquetball player, you will need to have a successful and knowledgeable coach to partner with. Coaches can be found at racquetball clubs, including the Portland Racquetball Club which Sawyer Howitt is a part of. It’s also important to do the right workouts as the workouts that are good for one type of sport are not recommended for other sports. A good coach can guide a player’s workout routines.
In addition to his passion for racquetball, Sawyer Howitt is also a budding entrepreneur who envisions founding his own companies one day, much like his parents have. His father, David Howitt, found Meriwether Group while both his parents had founded and then successfully sold Oregon Chai, a popular brand of tea that is now available nationally.
In order to get the education necessary for his dreams, Sawyer Howitt plans to attend the University of California, Berkeley, starting in the 2017 fall quarter. He plans to graduate in 2022 with a degree in Entrepreneurial Finance
