Ricky Thomas, a senior at Oyler High School, is our student-athlete of the week. Ricky is a captain on the men’s basketball team. He also is a member of the cross country and track team. Ricky who is often described as being a leader is always busy! He operates the scoreboard at local sporting events and works at a local car wash. When he is not working or focusing on school, he can often be found watching NBA games or cheering on his Steelers. After graduation he plans to attend college at the University of Cincinnati, Blue Ash and major in sports management or sports medicine.  

Ricky shares, “My favorite part of being involved in this foundation is engaging with the younger students at my school. Also, having the opportunity to give back and help the students in some small way.”
