Shoes To Use

The Journey Begins With The First Step

About Us

About Me

My name is Owen Sacchi and I am a junior at Oakwood School in North Hollywood. Since my freshman year, I have been on my High School’s Varsity Basketball Team. Though I am the shortest player on the court I have an indomitable heart and a limitless will to succeed. My hope for young athletes is that they have confidence in themselves and a belief that hard work and commitment can level many obstacles.
