Gotham Burger Sportstar of the Week: Nikki Bick

The Jewish Link of New Jersey and Gotham Burger would like to recognize 17-year-old Nikki Bick as Sportstar of the week. The 17-year-old Bruriah senior is leading her basketball team to first place.

When asked to describe Nikki, Bruriah Coach Susan Rifkin told the JLNJ, “From the moment Nikki stepped on the court as a freshman at Bruriah, it was clear that her teammates, fans, and coach wanted the ball in her hands as much as possible. The only ones who didn’t want that were her opponents; and even then, some part of me believes they rooted for her because they recognized in her what we all did, a talent and competitor they will most likely never again experience in their lifetimes. Not much has changed in the four years that Nikki has graced the court. Nikki is the ultimate game changer and teams organize their game plans around her.”

Nikki, who would you say is your role model?

My Mom.

What is your pregame meal?

A protein bar.

What is your favorite sports memory?

Winning the championship in freshman year.

What is your favorite thing to do when not playing sports?

Exercising (running).

What is the best thing about being a sportstar?

I make new friends and learn things on and off the court. I also get the opportunity to travel to different cities.

The Gotham Burger Sportstar of the Week will receive a $10 gift certificate to Gotham Burger. Please send nominees for next week’s Gotham Burger Sportstar of the Week to [email protected]
