2015 Kings Black team Attackman and midfielder Joe Ryan has committed to play Division III lacrosse for the Transylvania University Pioneers in Lexington, Kentucky. Ryan will be joining the Pioneers in their 4th season of play and second season in the Ohio River Lacrosse Conference. Ryan, a 6’3” 175 attackman finished his senior campaign as one of the best offensive players in the city. The Paul Laurence Dunbar graduate lead the Bulldogs to the KLA state title game posting 55 goals and 16 assists in addition to first team all-state honors. A three year starter for the Dunbar Lacrosse program, Ryan produced one of the best offensive years for a player in a Bulldog uniform.
"Joe really stepped his game up and developed his offensive ability this year. It was amazing to see him develop as one of the best pure scorers in the area. He did so much to elevate his game and lacrosse IQ through his senior year. Transy is getting a great scorer who brings the best out of his teammates with his positive attitude."
