2015 Wes Montgomery Award Recipient
The 2015 Wes Montgomery award recipient is one of the few winners who Wes could actually
look in the eye. Ryan came to the Wildcats in the 2011 season after a successful High School
career with the Bev Facey Falcons.
Ryan made an immediate impact with the Wildcats by both playing receiver and handling the
kicking duties as a first year player. Ryan earned an invitation that summer to be a part of the
U19 Team Canada squad that beat the U.S. team (quarterbacked by Jamieson Winston) for the
first time at the 2012 World Juniors. Ryan came back from that experience more confident and
as a second year player began to take on a leadership role on the Wildcats team.
Throughout his career Ryan has played larger than his physical stature. He is a fierce competitor
and often one of the emotional leaders with the team. Ryan has been a part of the leadership
group for the past 4 seasons and has been involved in our In The Community program, which
allows Wildcat players to get involved with various nonprofit organizations throughout the City.
Ryan is currently enrolled in Business at MacEwan University, and has continued to strive to be
as good in the classroom as he is on the field.
Congratulations Ryan, on this tremendous honor!
