My name is Bentley and I am the mascot at Sterling's Team Speed. My Dad is Sterling and we are both co-owners of Sterling's Team Speed. I regularly train at Sterling's Team Speed by walking the floor and playing ball. I am extremely proficient with soccer balls, as I am the goalie of Sterling's Team Speed's team. In addition to playing ball I do strength training to keep myself fit. I welcome everyone into the Sterling's Team Speed facility and appreciate being acknowledged and pet. I do take naps on the treadmill or in my Dad's office, as he trains me hard and I need to get my rest. I'm proud to say that I've been nominated several times for Athlete of the Month. I look forward to meeting you at Sterling's Team Speed!
