SIU-bound Rybarczyk regains confidence after return from injury
WHEATON – It took Nick Rybarczyk some time to find the position of catcher, but once he did, there was no leaving it.
The Addison Trail senior first played backstop in eighth grade. He quickly learned the position and grew into it. Rybarczyk has developed into a leader of the Blazers and will continue to play behind the plate at Southern Illinois.
“I was a shortstop all my life, but I started catching and started throwing guys out,” Rybarczyk said. “One of my coaches saw my arm and said gear up and throw down two [second base]. I threw some good balls down two and ever since then I’ve loved it.”
