Personal Statement

I'm Ryan Switzer. I am a 5'10, 173 lb running back/slot/cornerback from Charleston, West Virginia. Although I am listed as a running back, I can play multiple positions, such as slot, kick/punt return man, cornerback, and safety. I also handle the kicking and punting for my team. Football is very important to me, I've been playing since I've been in the 5th grade.  I was the starting PG on the 2011 State Champion basketball team. In 2010 I finished 5th in the state in the 100 meter dash with a time of 11.1 and 6th in the long jump at 20'6". I was the lead man on the 4 x 100 and 4 x 200 teams that won state championships. In 2010 I led our team in receiving, ypc and scored 12 TDs - receiving, rushing and return combined. I averaged over 110 yards all purpose yards per game for the #1 ranked team in WV. I literally never left the field as I started on offense, defense and handled the kicking duties. I also avg 40 yards per punt and only had 5 punts returned all year. It has always been not only a dream, but a goal to play high-level collegiate football. I am willing to commit to any college in the country, that puts faith in me with a scholarship. My athletic goals for my college career, aren't different from many others. Playing significant minutes as a freshman is 50/50. I want is to be a big part in helping my team win. I want to play somewhere that wins, and where the best players play, so that I will always have a chance to prove myself. Football is something I'd love to do past the college level, if I make the opportunity, but if not, that's why I maintain a 3.8 GPA at one of the top academic schools in the state of West Virginia. If however, I'm fortunate enough to play past the collegiate level, I believe I would make a great return specialist and 3rd down back. I hope this helped you understand a little bit more about who I am. Thank you. -Ryan Switzer
