We are pleased to announce George Rodney as our last "The Unofficial Pick" for this season and the overall IFSA Junior Series champ! Athlete Name: George Williamson Rodney Freeride Program & Head Coach: Team Summit; Coaches - Ryan Van Nuys, Jason Anthony, Chris Carson "George is hands down the most fearless athlete I have ever seen. As he matures as a skier, look for him to figure out the balance between pushing himself, and realizing what is actually possible. Although many people call him the "Man Child" he is actually one of the most caring athletes with the younger team members. He is never afraid to befriend a younger athlete and show them the ropes. He is constantly goofing around and making everyone around him smile." Ryan Van Nuys George Rodney – The Unofficial Pick from IFSA | Unofficial Networks
