“Press sports has advanced my athletic journey in terms of exposure and recognition by other and similar athletes. It helps me know that I’m not alone on this journey and that there are people out there who somewhat share the same passion. I am yet to receive follows from coaches and clubs, but I believe that one day press sports can assist me with that, elevating my game and accompanying me to that next level.” – Jordan Olarewaju
