Sawyer thanked, “my grandmother and aunt, they’ve helped me to become what I am today and to do my best at everything.” He thanked the Carpenter family, “They’ve been supporting me for the last three and a half years. I can’t thank them enough for what they’ve done.” He thanked, “all the families in the community that have let me stay with them since the end of my junior year, the Fischer’s, Stewards, and the Klisch families. They’ve helped me to do better in school and to never give up on anything I do.” He also thanked, “my coaches and teammates. The coaches have equipped me with the knowledge to do great things in both football and in life. My teammates never let me quit and were always there to have my back.”
