Meet Sadie

Meet Sadie, a hardworking, motivated, and outgoing 17-year-old from Belmont, NC. Sadie grew up in a sports-minded family, and has always been a huge college football fan. Next year, she is attending the University of Alabama and playing on the Women’s Wheelchair Basketball Team. She hopes to land a job in sports one day!

She is an American Paralympic athlete with over 20 medals in track and field, and she hopes to play for Team USA, on the Wheelchair Basketball team.
