Updated: April 25, 2017

Get ready Bleacher Boy fans!!!! This week’s Athlete of the Week goes to…….RYAN ALTSCHUL!!

Ryan is 9 years old and is a 3rd grader at Colonial Road School in Franklin Lakes, NJ. Ryan loves all sports and you can find him on the basketball court, the baseball field and even on the golf course!

This Spring, Ryan is playing travel basketball for Hoop City, is playing golf for the Preakness Hills Junior Golf team AND is playing travel baseball for The Franklin Lakes War Eagles. This is one busy superstar!

Last week Ryan was asked to play up in the 10U game. He practiced his swing in the backyard and even in the garage so he would be ready. On the day of the game, Ryan got up to bat and HIT A HOME RUN!! All his hard work and practice payed off! Three days later in his 9U game he was the War Eagles closing pitcher, he pitched 3 scoreless innings, batted 3 for 3 and helped the War Eagles come back from behind to win it 10-9! Way to go Ryan!

Ryan says his favorite athlete is Derek Jeter because in addition to being awesome at baseball, he works hard and is a leader on and off the field. Ryan’s dream is to play shortstop for The Yankees. Dream Big Ryan! You are on your way! The Bleacher Boys agree you definitely deserve to be Athlete of the Week! Congratulations and welcome to the huddle.
