True Blue Reynolds wins Philips Sports Dad of the Year

NSWRL

He’s won a premiership, played Origin and is the proud captain of his beloved South Sydney Rabbitohs.

Now, Adam Reynolds can add Philips Sports Dad of the Year to his impressive list of achievements.

The Rabbitohs star is this year’s winner after polling more than 20 per cent of the vote to beat out NRL colleagues Josh Morris, Michael Jennings and James Tamou, AFL superstars Trent Cotchin, Tom Hawkins and Mitch Robinson, super car favourite Fabian Coulthard, NBA Star Matthew Dellavedova and Wallaby half Nic White.

“I’d like to thank everyone who supported me and all the other dads – it’s a great honour to be named the Philips Sports Dad of the Year” Adam said.

“My family means the world to me – Tallara and all my beautiful kids.

“Being in a ‘bubble’ has made it very challenging at times. We haven’t been able to get out and about as a family as we normally would. I guess I’ve learnt a lot more about them as we’ve seen a lot of each other this year.”

Besides winning the title, Adam will donate his $5000 prize to Save our Sons, the organisation fighting every day for a cure to Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy.

“They are a foundation that works extremely hard,” Adam said. “It’s a great cause and hopefully we can find a cure soon,” Adam said.

Adam will spend Father’s Day with his family relaxing after a tough game against the Storm on Friday night.

“Today I will be in lockdown so just some family time at home. Playing games in the back yard and a family movie in the afternoon.

“I’d like to thank Philips for getting behind this amazing award and wish all the dads out there a happy Father’s day.”
