2022 Sheetz Family Award of Excellence Winner: Brendan Rooker

Please help us in congratulating this year’s Sheetz Family Award of Excellence winner, Brendan Rooker from Lycoming County

The Sheetz Family Award of Excellence recognizes the athlete whose determination and effort can only be understood by the power of the human spirit to overcome obstacles and inspire greatness.

This year, despite training all season to compete in swimming, Brendan graciously offered to switch to basketball when he saw that his county would not be able to field a team without him. Despite not knowing much about the sport, Brendan trained hard, learned the game and supported his teammates in every possible way. His selflessness, dedication to his team and desire to always leave it out in the court is why Brendan was selected for this prestigious award.

Special thanks to Daillard Paris, Jr., Special Olympics Pennsylvania Board member and Director of Supply and Trading at Sheetz for presenting this award and for all he does to support our athletes!

Congratulations Brendan!
