Gotham Burger Sportstar of the Week: Ryan Teller

The Jewish Link of New Jersey and Gotham Burger would like to recognize seven year old Ryan Teller as this week’s Sportstar of the Week. The Yeshivat Noam second grader is coming off a terrific AIFL flag football spring season. Ryan was the Steelers MVP when he led them to the semifinals of their division. Some would say he was the league MVP for the K-1 division. Teller plays all sports and loves playing with his siblings. His favorite professional teams are the Mets, Rangers and Jets.

My Uncle David because he loves to play sports just like me.

In Flag Football, I was running for a touchdown when my flag belt fell down and tripped me.
