In the past, Racquetball has not been a sport that has garnered much attention in the United States. Lacking the star power of Tennis or even the fictional star power of Ping-Pong (see: Forrest Gump), Racquetball has mostly been a sport played by the elite at health clubs.
While this is currently the case, a young racquetball player playing out of the Racquetball Club in Portland, Oregon, aims to change all of that. Sawyer Howitt, a young Racquetball star in the making and the son of the founder of a well known Portland business, the Meriwhether Group, is coming to a Racquetball court near you. Although the majority of Howitt’s Racquetball experience comes from the Oregon State High School Ranks in which he played Boys Singles, Howitt has all the makings of a future Olympian in the sport.
While Howitt is currently more focused in working for his father’s business, his Racquetball Talent is undeniable. Those individuals in the known when it comes to Racquetball predict a bright future for Sawyer Howitt. Combining talent with intelligence and charisma, Sawyer Howitt will likely find himself representing his country, and more impressively becoming Racquetball’s first big crossover, breakout star!
It will be interesting to see how Sawyer Howitt’s Racquetball career flourishes and grows in the not too distant future.
