Bio

Ryan is from and currently resides in Lexington, Kentucky. He has grown up in football and is a diehard Pittsburgh Steelers fan. Ryan played football for 15 years, including playing football in college at Thomas More College (Division III). He graduated from Thomas More in 2017 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Sports and Entertainment Marketing, along with an Associate’s Degree in Business Administration. Ryan is currently a Southeast Scout for XOS Digital. It has been Ryan’s lifelong dream to work in football after being done with his playing days. He has about three years of writing experience. He started his own blog called SteelCats, in which he wrote about the Pittsburgh Steelers and University of Kentucky football and basketball. Ryan then went on to a brief stint with TSJ Sports as their Steelers beat writer. Along with his contributions to Blitzalytics, Ryan writes for Steel City Underground, which focuses on the Steelers. Ryan joined Blitzalytics after meeting members of the team at the SMWW Football Career Conference and has hopes of learning and getting better in the scouting/analytics aspects of sports reporting.
