A big congratulations to our June Athlete of the Month Phoenix Pickler! It’s been an honor to watch him grow into the young man he’s become!
I have been at Crossfit for 2.5 years.
My favorite thing(s) to work on at the gym are deadlifts, benchpress, rope climb, jump rope and the yolk.
I have been playing hockey for 8.5 years. Last year I played JV for Francis Howell and also played on a league team.
Here is a fun story … When I played for Chesterfield Falcons, we made it to the semi-final state championship. We were losing 2-0 with two minutes left. We were able to tie the game to 3-3 which sent the it into over-time. After being blind-sided, drawing a game misconduct on the other player and being helped off the ice, I talked my way back into the game. I drew a penalty shot on a break away. Although I didn’t score on the penalty shot, my team scored to win the game. That win allowed us to go to state. We won state 1-0. Fun times.
most? I am looking forward to NOT going to school for 3 months, hanging out at the gym and going to Florida for two weeks.
My favorite part about the gym are the people.
Keep up all the hard work Phoenix, and congratulations again!!
