Ryan Kerrigan - Washington Football Team STS Nominee 2020

Ryan Kerrigan (Linebacker)

A silent leader on-and-off the field, Ryan Kerrigan has defined the Washington Football Team's culture for the past decade. A presence in the locker room representing discipline, poise, and a winning mentality for each and every player that's stepped foot in the locker room. Ryan's player mentality and approach to the game is similar to the mentality taught in the United States Navy, where they teach "not self, but country." One of Kerrigan's best friend serves in the United States Navy, and he is proud to participate in the Washington Football Team's military outreach initiatives. Acting as a host and captain when the team's visited Joint Base Andrews to hold their annual practice, staying an extra hour at the USO Warrior & Family Center Salute to Service BBQ to ensure all uniformed personnel got a picture with him, and being the last player to leave each and every military appreciation practice during Training Camp and Organized Team Activities.
