"Ryan comes to us highly decorated and as a proven winner. The quarterback position for us has been one where we have been very blessed over the years. The QB must be the leader, maintain calm while under pressure and deliver the big plays. Ryan has proven that he is capable of doing just that. He has looked very good during camp thus far and we are looking forward to seeing him in action soon.  We are blessed to have him on board and are expecting a great season from him in 2023"-Director of Operations Paul Pennington.
