The year 2011 started out to be an incredibly good year for Ryan, beginning with light powder days snowboarding at Mammoth and then great surfing and mountain biking adventures with friends and family. Academically, Ryan was excelling at Mission Bay High School: playing football, on the swim team, engaging in community service, and consistently scoring at the top of his academic class. By years end Ryan was awarded Student Athlete of the Year and named Salutatorian of his graduating class. His hard work paid off with several prominent university offers and an academic scholarship. Ryan chose UC Santa Barbara to pursue a major in Physics.
