Ray Hennagir

Bio: Ray Hennagir got his start in Para sport as a wheelchair basketball player after being encouraged to try the sport by one of his recreational therapists at Walter Reed Army Medical Center. However, when he saw the physicality of wheelchair rugby and the opportunity to compete at the highest level, he decided to shift his focus away from wheelchair basketball. In his downtime, Hennagir still plays wheelchair basketball recreationally. He also like to spend time with his large family - eight siblings total! In order to compete at the highest level and prepare to for the Tokyo Paralympics, he said he’s had to miss out on more family events than he would have liked, but the prospect of gold makes it worth it.
