Player Profile: Justin M.

Justin is a sixth grader at Sanborn Middle School. And, on weekends in the Spring and Fall, he's the greatest National Anthem singer we've ever heard! When he's not playing with us at Miracle League or learning at school, Justin is very active. He swims, skis, and is quite the collector. He collects coins, as well as snow globes.

Last year, Justin completed the Chicago Marathon alongside some of his greatest friends. Justin described the experience as "fun but rough because of temperature change. One hour I'd be freezing cold and the next I'd be burning." His favorite part was "going along Lake Shore Drive.". He sums up the experience by thanking his team and expressing joy for the post-race celebration. "I was very thankful to my team, Triumph, for providing a special chair. In the end it was very exciting to get a medal.". Read an article on Justin's experience here. And, find out more about him below!
