2015 Wes Montgomery Award Recipient
The 2015 Wes Montgomery award went to Ryan Smith of ServiceMaster Clean of Edmonton.
Ryan made an immediate impact with the Wildcats by both playing receiver and handling the kicking duties as a first year player. Ryan earned an invitation that summer to be a part of the U19 Team Canada squad that beat the U.S. team (quarterbacked by Jamieson Winston) for thefirst time at the 2012 World Juniors. Ryan came back from that experience more confident and as a second year player began to take on a leadership role on the Wildcats team.
Throughout his career Ryan has played larger than his physical stature. He is a fierce competitor and often one of the emotional leaders with the team. Ryan has been a part of the leadership group for the past 4 seasons and has been involved in our In The Community program, which allows Wildcat players to get involved with various nonprofit organizations throughout the City.
Ryan is currently enrolled in Business at MacEwan University, and has continued to strive to be as good in the classroom as he is on the field.
Congratulations Ryan, on this tremendous honor!
