Sawyer's best performance came against the Florida Launch on July 11, when he tallied a personal best five goals plus one assist for six points. Sawyer was held pointless in just one game during all of 2015.

2014: Sawyer continued to improve in his second MLL season, playing a mix of midfield and attack. In 14 games, he posted a team-high 24 goals, of which three were 2-pointers, marking another team high. Sawyer added two assists for a total of 29 points, which ranks third on the Hounds roster. He registered a hat trick in three different games this season.

2013: The Hounds selected Sawyer with their first pick (8th overall) of the 2013 MLL Collegiate Draft and he more than lived up to expectations. Sawyer made his MLL debut on May 17 against the Nationals, tallying his first professional goal and adding two assists. He appeared in a total of 11 regular-season games, compiling 14 goals and six assists. Not only did Sawyer earn a spot on the MLL All-Star roster, he set a new record during the game for fastest lacrosse shot at 114mph. But it was during the Hounds' postseason run that Sawyer truly broke out, scoring six goals in two games, including his first career 2-pointer.

Collegiate: In four years at Loyola, Sawyer racked up 154 points on 128 goals plus 26 assists, as well as played a key role in the Greyhounds’ run to a national title in 2012. That same season he was a Tewaaraton Award finalist and earned USILA All-America Second Team honors in addition to All-ECAC First Team and ECAC All-Championships Team.
