KCChronicle.com/preps Athlete of the Week: Aurora Christian boys basketball's Ryan Suttle
Why he was selected: Hit the game-winning basket to give Aurora Christian the 2A Westmont Regional title on Friday against Immaculate Conception.
Aurora Christian's Ryan Suttle was a key part of the Eagles team that advanced to a 2A supersectional in 2010-11 before falling victim to a first-round upset last season. Now, the senior point guard is hoping to lead the Eagles on a postseason surge that mirrors what Suttle (a linebacker) and the football Eagles accomplished in the fall, winning a state title. Suttle, the St. Charles Bank & Trust-Kane County Chronicle Athlete of the Week, spoke with Chronicle sports editor Jay Schwab leading up to tonight's 2A Byron Sectional final against unbeaten Winnebago. The following is an edited transcript:
With that last-minute put-back [on Friday], was it a matter of them just not getting a body on you?
You know, I just saw it going up and I think there was a guy actually trying to box me out but it just kind of bounced over him, and I was just kind of in the right place at the right time for a long rebound, I guess.
