In 2006 Jake Shanklin broke the hammer record with a throw of 194'10".  In 2007 Patrick McCormick broke the school record in the javelin with a throw of 234'07" which was the top throw in the country for a junior college athlete. Ryan’s personal best of 233'10" in the javelin qualified him for the 2006, 2007 and 2008 USATF Track and Field Championships. Ryan has coached 91 All-Americans in track in his nine year stint as the head throwing coach. Ryan and his wife Jeanene have two children, a son Kyler and a daughter Cyisa.
