Ryan lands two junior day invites
Pomona offensive lineman Kendall Ryan has a frame at 6-foot-4, 285 pounds that continues to garner interest from coaches at the next level. That has not stopped this from working hard to expand his skills on the football field. Ryan knows what he wants to get better at before the fall rolls around.
"I would say it is more power lifting. That is what I'll be really working on with the power aspect. I will also do everything I can to get better."
Ryan will continue staying focused on what he has been doing overall.
"I've been training at Impact Sports five times a week usually. I'll be lifting and working on the field. Footwork is something that can be improved so I want to keep that up. I like the program I'm in and I'm already seeing improvements.
This junior is in a unique situation as Ryan is in school at Jefferson Academy but heads to Pomona to play football.
"It was a bit of a difference coming into my freshman year but I got used to it. It has been a blessing for me because it has been the best of both worlds. There is a small, tight knit community at Jefferson Academy that helps me get a good education. Pomona offers a good education too but I was blessed finding a good football program to be a part of."
Ryan has college coaches interested in what he can bring to the table.
"CSU sent me a junior day invite as well as Wyoming. I received an email from Oregon telling me that they have passed the information onto their coaches. UNC has looked at my profile quite a bit. I'm expecting to hear more from them in April."
Another sport got in the way of Ryan heading up to Fort Collins.
"I am captain of the basketball team at Jefferson Academy and we had a tournament that weekend so I didn't get a chance to go. I talked to one of their coaches and they understood."
Ryan speaks highly overall of the Rams and what they have to offer.
"Right now, CSU would probably be my favorite college. We went up there my sophomore year for a football camp and I really loved the campus. The coaches just seem good and they have really nice surroundings."
