COACH'S QUOTE – "Ryan is a 'Coach's Wrestler'. He works extremely hard both on the mat and in the classroom. He is one of those kids that you don't have to worry about doing the wrong things. His presence in the wrestling room makes everyone else better. He understands and recognizes areas he needs to work on and he goes out and does it. He is a coachable wrestler!"
— John Roth, Wrestling Coach
