Terence Ryan named an ECAC All-Star in football
Terence Ryan ’07
LEWISTON, Maine — Bates College senior Terence Ryan has been named to the ECAC Division III Northeast Football All-Star team as an Honorable Mention selection, the league announced on Monday.
Ryan is one of 33 players on the team, and the only defensive lineman to earn an honorable mention. He is the first Bobcat to be named to an ECAC All-Star team since Frost Hubbard ’00 in 1999.
In November, the 6-5, 235-pound Ryan (Milton, Mass.) was named a First Team All-NESCAC defensive end for the second straight year, after setting the school record for quarterback sacks for the second straight year. Ryan tied the NESCAC record with 10.5 sacks in 2005, then exceeded that mark in 2006 with 11.5 sacks (Middlebury’s Kevin Ryan set a new NESCAC record with 15.5).
Collecting 1.4 sacks per game despite often facing double-team blocking, Ryan was ranked sixth in all of Division III in that category. He also led the NESCAC and was fourth in Division III in tackles for loss per game (2.5), and he was tied for the league lead in forced fumbles per game (0.25).
Ryan served as a team tri-captain and was a key component of the Bobcats’ stellar defense against the run, which ranked third in the NESCAC and 13th in Division III with only 67.1 yards allowed per game.
