Sawyer Howitt loves the game of racquetball along with many other passions. Howitt is already involved in business at his father’s company the Meriwether Group where he hopes to impress future employers with his talents as a project manager. But he has a keen love for racquetball because it’s not your usual sport with basic ball-handling skills. It’s a sport that takes an extra level of concentration whether you’re playing indoor or outdoor due to all the walls and corners the ball can bounce off of. Howitt began playing this sport at a young age and has continued on through high school.
Howitt is listed in USA Racquetball’s statistics page from having competed in various tournaments from amateur youth level to state high school. In both 2015 and 2016 he competed in the state finals though he lost in close matches in both of them. But he’s still looked at as having high potential, and you can find Howitt practicing his game at The Racquet Club, Portland. He’s also on WordPress and has given tips to other racquetball blogs on how you can improve your game and possibly become a professional one day.
Part of Howitt’s advice includes learning all the intricacies of racquetball’s moves and mastering the serve and reading ball bounces. Sawyer Howitt says it can take a great deal of reading books, watching videos and conducting other research because the game takes more time to learn. But most of all Howitt says your coach is the most important person in this because they’ll be the person who can push you to success more so than yourself. Howitt will be attending UC Berkley in the fall of 2017, but he’ll continue to be active in racquetball as a student. He also has profiles on Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn.
