10 Sports Influencers You’ve Gotta Check Out
 

Who are the best sports influencers on social media? That is the question we set to answer. We came up with a nice group ranging from trick shot performers to fitness models to popular football fans (but we ruled out traditionally famous athletes – they don’t need our help.) The people below are more known for their social media presence than anything else. Did we leave out anyone? Tell us who your favorite sports influencers are in the comments section below.

.
1. Kalaniballfree (Basketball) – Over 1,500,000 Followers Combined 
 .
Otherwise known as Kalani Ahmad, this Hawaiian social media star initially gained fame from his Vine videos performing incredible basketball tricks. This has given him the avenue to travel all around the globe and showcase his talents. He’s performed on the show, “America’s Got Talent” and has worked with such high profile brands before such as HP and Samsung. He also goes to schools telling his success story. By using the word SPIN he sends his message: Strive, Positive, Imagine and Never Give Up. CONTACT NOW

2. Brodie Smith (Frisbee) – Over 4,000,000 Followers Combined

You could very well be one his 1.7 Million (and counting) subscribers on YouTube, but if you’re not, we recommend you to be. This guy does some crazy stuff with a frisbee. He’s not just limited to frisbee tricks either. He’s done it with basketballs, bottles, tennis balls, you name it. He’s one of the more talented influencers out there and deserves to be recognized as a ‘Trick Shot King’.  CONTACT NOW

5. Furious Pete (Fitness) – Over 5,000,000 Followers Combined
.
Pete is a competitive eater – yes, there is such a thing. In fact, he has participated in more than 90 eating competitions and holds 6 Guinness World Records. It’s pretty rare to find a guy who can eat a whole onion in 43.5 seconds or 17 bananas in 2 minutes or 15 hamburgers in 10 minutes, but he works it all off by his intense workouts. In fact, Pete remains to be one of the top bodybuilders on YouTube and Instagram.  CONTACT NOW
