 I have had the opportunity to coach Ryan Reynolds during his sophomore and junior years.  Ryan is currently a senior in our program.  First of all, as a person, Ryan is an outstanding young man.  He is very respectful to authority, and wants to do the right thing.  Secondly, as a player, Ryan not only excels individually but has a desire to see his teammates excel as well.  He is the type of player that makes others want to work harder.  Ryan has a tremendous work ethic which rubs off on his teammates.  One thing that impresses me is how humble he is.  Ryan has received many accolades as well as scholarship offers over the past two years; however, he will never discuss these things with me or his teammates unless specifically asked. Not only am I looking forward to watching Ryan play his senior year, I am excited to see what the future holds for him!

I have had the honor and privilege to coach Ryan the last five (5) years.  He is not only a great baseball player but more importantly a phenomenal young man.  Ryan has committed to play college baseball at the University of Texas at Austin.   I have never coached a player with more passion for the game of baseball then Ryan. He not only demonstrates leadership on the field but he also demonstrates leadership off of the field.    He stands at 6’2″ and weighs 200 lbs.  He possesses PLUS bat speed from both sides of the plate with raw power and has a great understanding of the strike zone. He plays 2nd base and has really good actions on the field with above average range.  He also has really good arm strength with really good carry on his throws.

Ryan has partnered with Klint Kelly and Dixie Diehards for Home Runs that Help

 Klint Kelley is a 32 year old special needs young man who has Prader-Willi Syndrome.  PWS is a complex genetic disorder affecting appetite, growth, metabolism, cognitive function and behavior.  It is typically characterized by low muscle tone, short stature (when not treated with growth hormone), incomplete sexual development, cognitive disabilities, behavioral problems, and the hallmark characteristics – chronic feelings of insatiable hunger and a slowed metabolism that can lead to excessive eating and life-threatening obesity.  Those who have PWS need intervention and strict external controls, sometimes including padlocking access to food, to maintain normal weight and to help save their lives. Klint is a huge baseball fan.  He was so excited to meet Ryan and spend some time getting to know him.  Klint  has been involved in playing baseball with the Dixie Diehards in West Monroe, LA since he was 10 years old.  That was the second year of the league.  It started with a small group of parents who wanted to give kids and eventually adults with any type disability an opportunity to play baseball.  Over the years the league has grown from that small group to having 3 leagues – Youth, American and National.  The participants must be 5 to begin playing but there is no age limit to how old they are to play.  The Youth and American leagues need Buddies to help them play their games.  They help them bat, run the bases and play in the field.  The National league players are skilled enough to play on their own.  Klint, along with all the other players, look forward to their games with excitement each year.  Several of the guys in the National League have my number and they call me at least once a week to find out for sure when we play and what time. 

Each year the league has a Hit-a-Thon to help raise money for annual expenses.  The players have 2 opportunities to hit off the tee and they win gift cards for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place in each league.  Funds raised go into the annual operating expense budget.  In the spring of 2016 we plan to have Ryan and his teammates come out and buddy the teams. Hopefully they will also be able to help with the fundraising and the annual Hit-a-Thon.  We really look forward to having Ryan and his teammates come buddy and have fun with our players.
