Coach Ackerman on Ryan:
"Ryan was the best leader I have seen in my 12 years of coaching. He is was a top notch student and carried the team on his back on the field. As a coach, Ryan is going to be a huge asset to our program. He has a lot of energy and eats and breathes baseball. I am looking forward to coaching with him this season.
