Name: Ryan Schwindt
Jersey Number. Is there a story behind it? #8. I’ve always had that number since I started playing volleyball.
Hometown: Grande Prairie, Alberta
High School: Peace Wapiti Academy
At what age did you start playing your sport? What drew you to the game? Started in Grade 6. All my friends were playing the sport so, I thought what the heck, might as well try it.
What is your fondest memory of your sport? Grade 10 Provincials in Fort Mac because we got to fly down instead of bus.
Any pre or post-game rituals that you would be willing to share? How do you prepare? The last 3 years every home Friday game some of us eat at Opa to get in a good meal before the game.
What are your future goals? I am not too sure what my plan for next year is yet or where I want to end up.
