David Kremer was honored Monday as the Special Olympics Athlete of the Month.
The award was given at the Santa Barbara Athletic Round Table press luncheon at Harry’s Plaza Cafe.
Kremer has been participating in Special Olympics sports for 15 years. He plays softball, basketball and soccer. He recently helped his softball team win some games at a tournament on Sunday.
When he isn’t on the field or court, he volunteers his time at a homeless shelter.
“The man’s got a great conscious; he’s a great athlete and a great human being,” said Aaron Brown, sponsor of the award.
“David is a very dedicated athlete,” said Kelsey Moss, coach of the softball team. “He’s an amazing athlete, has a great attitude, and I’m very happy he was nominated for this award.”
