Ryder also mixes it up on the boards effectively.

This past season Ryder averaged 6.1 points and 4.4 rebounds on varsity as a freshman. Something from last season that is now pushing Ryder forward and motivates him is losing in the first round of the region when they know they shouldn’t have. It was just a tough game for him to handle knowing they should’ve won and everything they did to get there, just never wanna have to be in that situation again so he determined to be better than anyone else on the court Eyder playing for Kentucky future during AAU his goal is to get his name out there and show coaches that he will play hard no matter what kind of team he plays.

When Ryader is on the court, what fuels him the most is winning as he loves winning and absolutely hates losing. So he will do anything he can to win. And when he messes up it bothers him because he wants to win so badly. When things don’t go his way on the court he tries to turn his anger and frustration into hustle and make himself play hard.

Something else he tries to do is just take a deep breath and try to play smart and make plays instead of playing in his head.

Something a coach can expect from Ryder that sets him apart from others is how hard he plays. He makes it a goal to never get outworked while in a game or practice. He also has a very good motor and can make himself play hard for long periods even when he is to the point of being very tired.
