Each year, Sports Illustrated Kids does a great job paying it forward
by recognizing children who are ages 7-15 who have stood out
and shown phenomenal sportsmanship through their achievement in their
school, their own communities and with sports with its super cool
SportsKid of the Year award.
The winner of the SportsKid of the Year this year goes to
Jack Wellman of Newtown, Connecticut.
childsplaypr.com passed along this great story and information
for us to share with you!
Like most kids, Jack Wellman loves sports. Until last year, he wrestled and played football and lacrosse. But then a bad injury sidelined him. Instead of sitting out, Jack decided he wanted to stay involved and give back by coaching. Even though he was just 13, he became a valuable mentor to a group of young wrestlers.
Jack's leadership, kindness, and spirit were exactly what his community of Newtown, Connecticut, needed when it suffered a terrible tragedy last winter. It inspired Jack to be as active as ever. He found ways to help his town heal through sports and beyond. Jack's big heart and determination to help his community are why he is the 2013 Sports Illustrated Kids SportsKid of the Year.
