“It’s a privilege to have this opportunity to give back to the program that has given me so much. I wouldn’t be where I am today without the development I received as a Rampage player. I’m excited to bring that same passion as a coach and provide athletes with a variety of tools to reach the highest levels of success.”
Welcome back, Ryan, we're grateful for the opportunity!
