Meet William Dennington

banner | June 13th, 2017

William is headed west! He was selected to be a member of Team South Carolina for the 2018 USA Games being held in Seattle, Washington, July 1-7. He’ll be competing in tennis and has been training twice a week, once in Hilton Head and another at Bluffton High School. He takes his training pretty seriously and makes sure that when he’s not on the court practicing, he’s eating healthy and working out with his dad.

When he’s not training, he’s working! You’ll catch William at Publix helping bag groceries and stocking the shelves. He looks great in that green apron! One day William would like to be a sports reporter. He loves sports of all kind and has even been on two local television shows.

Family support is important for success and William’s dad says he couldn’t be prouder! “I am so very proud of my son William! He’s very dedicated to his sport and practices twice a week!” Although William was selected to compete in tennis at USA Games, he’s competed locally in bowling, track and field and equestrian.

As his journey to USA Games begins, he’s got the support of his family, Special Olympics South Carolina friends, coaches and his local community behind him all the way.
