Ricky Hustile is a 5’11" shooting guard from a small town called Upshur, Indiana. He spent hours perfecting his three point touch playing basketball on the courts of Alta Park.
Hustile was a two time all conference guard for the Fighting Dog Fish of Upshur High School North. His senior year, he averaged 22 points, 6 rebounds and 4 steals and 3.2 assists per game. He shot 42 percent from behind the arc his senior year and led the Dog Fish to their first and only conference, regional and state championships. Hustile poured in 26 points, 8 rebounds, 5 steals and 6 assists in the state game and was named MVP.
Hustile played collegiate ball for the Bobcats of Keane University. He was a two time All Midwest Conference pick his first and sophomore years. A string of injuries, including plantar fasciitis and a stress fracture in a his left femur, cut his junior and senior seasons short. After graduating Magna Cum Laude with a bachelor’s in business degree, Hustile moved to Chicago and started working with a then small software technology company called Nterprise Tech.
Hustile wears 33 because 3 is a lucky number and 33 is 11 times as lucky. He has two nicknames. “Kill Switch” for shutting down opposing team’s best player and “Wish” because his three point prayer against the St. Vista Knights in the regional semifinals was answered with a resounding swish and advanced the team to the state competition.
His favorite shot is the three pointer from the wing or anything in the clutch.
Hustile is a three time national top salesman award winner for Nterprise Tech and believes in the golden rule, “Treat others as you wan to be treated.”
