Sydney Ryan, daughter of Jen and Steve Ryan, is this week’s Jet’s Pizza female Athlete of the Week.
She is a freshman at Franklin High School and a member of the Girls Basketball Team.
She plays the position of shooting guard for the team. This season, she said that scoring 30 points against Hillsboro and 18 against Brentwood were the biggest highlights.
She said her family has always loved basketball, so it was natural for her to be interested in playing.
When asked what inspires her to continue training and competing she said, “I want to be the best that I can be, and I want the team to be the best we can be.
One of her biggest role models is her father, Steve.
“He always strives to be the best at everything he does and never loses his competitive fire,” she said.
After graduating, which is still a ways down the road for Ryan, she hopes to get a full-ride scholarship to play basketball in college.
