    Signs of strength

    Archbishop Ryan’s Jon Liguori has proven his power on and off the field. The senior recently helped his mom through a breast cancer battle.

    In the moments following Saturday’s gritty season-opening win over archrival Father Judge, Frank McArdle reiterated the team’s motto to his victorious Archbishop Ryan Raiders:

    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.

    Last year, Marquis Seamon flew to Ireland for a football game and returned home with a season-ending fractured wrist as his souvenir.
