D.I.T.R: Ryan Ventura

Ryan Ventura is a 5’9 185 pound player entering his Senior season at Keller High School. He is a multi-sport athlete that plays both football and baseball for the school. In the classroom, he’s a great example of a student athlete with having a 3.8 GPA. His tape is eye popping with the amount of plays he makes on the football field. A ball hawking safety that flies all over the football field making plays for the defense. His play style is almost like a Tyrann Mathieu, he can disrupt any play on the field and isn’t afraid to lower the shoulder on anyone. On top of that, he had a big role in the special teams game and also made some plays at running back. #7 is ready for another big breakout season to stamp his name at the next level.
