The next step: On Feb. 5, the Arch­bish­op Ry­an com­munity cel­eb­rated three foot­ball play­ers sign­ing Na­tion­al Let­ters of In­tent to con­tin­ue their foot­ball ca­reers in col­lege. From left: school pres­id­ent Mi­chael McArdle, Joe Hans­bury (Mer­cy­hurst Col­lege), Con­nor Golden (Buck­nell Uni­versity), Sean Boylan (West Chester Uni­versity) and head coach Frank McArdle. The trio helped the Raid­ers to one of their most suc­cess­ful sea­sons in re­cent memory; though they did not qual­i­fy for the Cath­ol­ic League play­offs, Ry­an went 8-3 over­all, in­clud­ing im­press­ive wins over power­house pro­grams St. Joseph’s Prep and Arch­bish­op Wood. It was the second straight win­ning sea­son at Ry­an, as the foot­ball pro­gram is in the midst of an im­press­ive turn­around. Golden played safety and wideout (10 in­ter­cep­tions, five re­ceiv­ing TDs in his seni­or sea­son); Boylan was a cap­tain and played tight end and de­fens­ive end; Hans­bury was also a cap­tain and a big part of an of­fens­ive line that helped ju­ni­or run­ning back Samir Bul­lock rush for 2,055 yards and 21 touch­downs.
