Ben Johns, the current #1 ranked pickleball player in the world was homeschooled. On his website, Johns states that he’s one of seven children and was homeschooled through high school.
Johns, currently a senior at the University of Maryland, studies material science (maybe he can invent a pickleball that won’t crack).
Besides his accomplishments on the pickleball court, Johns started a company specializing in vacations for pickleball players: Pickleball Getaways.
It’s great seeing a homeschooled student have success in multiple facets of life! To learn more about Ben Johns, check out this article from Inside Hook.
