Last week I talked to New Trier junior guard Daniela Sirott about her athletic heroes, who inspires her in professional sports. Her answer took me by surprise.
“Jamal Crawford,” she said.
Jamal Crawford? Sixth Man of the Year Jamal Crawford? Why?
“He’s not a starter but he still brings a lot to his team,” Sirott explained.
I nodded my head and considered her answer. It seemed fair, since Sirott herself is often working from off the bench.
So I decided to talk to other girls on the New Trier team to figure out what other athletes they like and who inspires them.
