The cool thing about this week’s Meijer Scholar Athlete is that he isn’t afraid to take chances.
Ty Rynbrant is a senior at South Christian where he currently has a 3.95 GPA. He plays quarterback for the football team and also participates in basketball during the winter. However, when it looked like the football season would be cancelled (the first time), he and a friend joined the tennis team. Keep in mind, the 17-year-old had never played the sport in his entire life! Throwing caution to the wind, he figured, “Why not? I’ll give it a shot!”
“It was a ton of fun,” he says. “I was super glad that I did it and I just got a lot better in the month that I played. We worked our way up to two doubles.”
Ty’s favorite subject his math. He aspires to go into business or be a math teacher while also coaching the school football team.
