"He prepare us well for the real world." That was what Kyle Antos had to say about Joe Ryan, head coach of the Sycamore High School varsity football team. Joe humbly replies that he hopes "he's more than just a football coach." With a focus on character and work ethic that extends well beyond the confines of practice or the field of play, coach Ryan is hopeful that his team will move past the first few games of the season, the most challenging third of a season that he can remember, and be competitive in their conference, new for this year. In addition to a new conference, the team is also adapting to new rule changes, such as the new contact rule that requires players to have 48 hours of non-contact rest after any game participation. With some injuries and stiff competition behind them, they will go on to play Kaneland High School on Friday, September 13th, hoping to put a win on the board.
