Ian Daffron, son of Eric and Meredith Daffron, is this week’s Jet’s Pizza Male Athlete of the Week.
He is a senior at Page High School and a member of the bowling team. This season, he said one of his biggest highlights was when he scored five strikes in a row.
When asked how he got his start in bowling, he answered jokingly, “I dared to do the undone.”
He said that his opponents are his biggest motivation when training and competing.
One of his biggest role models and inspirations is PHS Wrestling Coach, Benji Gray. He said that Gray has taught him to take pride in his work and realize that every job is important.
One of Daffron’s coaches said of him, “Ian strives to be his best and continually supports his teammates with encouragement and positive morale. He is an amazing example of a student athlete, excelling both on the lanes and in the classroom.”
After graduating this year from PHS, Daffron plans to go to college to pursue a career in mechanical engineering.
