NBA: Who Are Jeremy Sochan's Parents, Ryan Williams, And Aneta Sochan?

NBA basketball player, Jeremy Sochan was born to his parents, Dad Ryan Williams and Mom Aneta Sochan in Oklahoma.

His mother, Aneta is from Poland and was a point guard at Oklahoma Panhandle State University where she met Sochan's late father, Ryan Williams. He was also a point guard there and professionally.

Aneta had moved to Panhandle from Poland, where she had previously played for SKK Polonia Warszawa. Her coach at Panhandle stressed defense first and which is what she has imparted to her son, Jeremy.

Ryan died unfortunately in a vehicle accident in 2017.

"I assume it was my grandfather who placed basketball in my hands, but it's always been around me," Sochan remarked. "My father and mother both played, so it's always been there."

Jeremy held his mother accountable for his irritating behavior in court.

"I've always had a little edge," Sochan said. "My mother was my first coach, and she still teaches me that defense comes first." She used to advise me to be cheeky and see the game two steps ahead."

"So, I believe that being cheeky, perhaps invading people's spaces, might divide their games and cause them to play poorly."

"It's not about being a nasty player," Aneta said. "It comes down to eyesight, seeing and reading the players. Be able to analyze them emotionally as well."

Aneta's mentality was straightforward: focus on playing strong defense and making sound judgments, and the rest of his game will take care of itself.

She said she always thought of herself as a solid defender and a high-IQ player during her career, but she doesn't see her son's game as a mirror reflection of her own.

"I've always been my own person, and he's his own person and player," she explained.

There's an old adage that moms always know best and while the term was intended to be global, it has given new meaning after Jeremy's draft in the 2022 NBA Draft on Thursday.

Sochan has previously represented Poland at the junior level. He guided Poland's under-16 national basketball team to victory in the 2019 FIBA U16 European Championship Division B in Montenegro. He was named tournament MVP there.
