Elite shoe game: How a San Antonio high school basketball star is helping middle schoolers stay in the sport (Spectrum News, 1/23/2023)

Rian Forestier couldn’t believe what an AAU basketball teammate told her last summer.

The teammate, who’s now one of the best players nationally in the Class of 2024, said she nearly quit during middle school tryouts after being teased about her shoes.

“She didn’t want to come back. She did not want to play basketball again,” said Forestier, a junior at San Antonio Brandeis High School. “That really hit me, because that’s my best friend, basically my sister, and I could not imagine her not playing basketball.”

Forestier and her mom, Denise, took action. They started a nonprofit called “4Ward”, with a mission to provide basketball shoes to players at Title 1 middle schools in San Antonio.
