Unfortunately I did not have the opportunity to sit down with Savanna before the year ended but I still want to share some pictures and some links to videos that will tell folks a little bit about her.
When I first entered the gym in the Ryerson Athletic Centre in August to meet the team and start my year with them, the first player I talked to was Savanna. She was injured and could not participate in practice so it was the two of us hanging out on the sidelines. She was friendly, talkative and completely welcoming. I will always be thankful to her for that because I was strangely nervous and apprehensive about whether I would be accepted into this new world.
Since we did not really talk about her early years or thoughts about the game, it was lucky that another Ryerson student made the following video about her.
Savanna is a 2nd year student at Ryerson in the Sports Media program. She has also had the opportunity to do some some modelling and commercial work. Below is a link to a Sport Chek commercial that she was in that was released during the NBA all-star weekend in Toronto this past February.
Thanks Savanna for being so accepting of me this year…can’t wait to see what cool and exciting projects you will be involved in next year.
