Head Coach Justin Wheeler says “Ryan brings an unrivaled amount of speed and agility to the team while at the same doing all the little things correct that win games. He also bring 3 years started including 1 game on the biggest stage in the state, the 2021 State Championship game. On the defensive side, he is able to lock down any receiver he is lined up against through using elite technique and ball skills. Using that skill set, no receiver caught a ball on him through 7 games and 12 targets. This season he will use those skills and his 4.6 speed to be a big part of our offense at TB and WR as well”.
