Hahira - Each day, a Hahira boy hopes for no homework but its not for the usual reasons.

Garrett Reinhardt is an 8th grade student at Hahira Middle.

He says a lot books make it harder for him to get to and from school each day because he rides a unicycle.

He was given the unicycle was a gift from his family. He learned to ride it in one day and has been riding it ever since.  "Somebody stole my bike so my dad got me a unicycle. We have a carport and I put my hand on the wall and just rode across it all day and by 10 o'clock that night I rode it to the end of the driveway," Garrett says.

He now says he is saving up to get a taller unicycle that will allow him to do more tricks.
