Peyton S.

Lakewood Family YMCA

When Spencer isn't at Shasta Junior College pursuing an education in Kinesiology and playing football, you can find him working and playing basketball at the Y. Growing up in a single parent household, Spencer's mother wanted his brother and him to have opportunities to grow and maintain a healthy lifestyle - they found this at the Y.
 
Spencer watched players he looked up to at the Y and their encouragement of his game left him inspired to work hard at becoming a great player. "It's a wonderful feeling when you have the opportunity to work with someone who had much inspiration on you growing up," he said. 
 
Now, with a few scholarships to transfer and play football at a university, Spencer is glad he has the Y to come home to - for inspiration, encouragement, and to keep up his hard work.
