Ryan Lewis is a 20-year-old Newspaper Journalism Major at Kent State University.
He was born and raised in Green, Ohio—except for a short stint in Nebraska, of all places—and now resides in Kent.
Lewis currently writes for three sites on the Rivals.com sports network, KentSportsReport.com, OhioVarsity.com and BearCatReport.com.
After finding a genuine love for sports journalism, he endured plywood press boxes and cherished $1.25 hot dogs in aluminum foil while covering high school sports for the Suburbanite Newspaper for four years.
His first sports memory as a kid is his dad taking him to Jacobs Field—as it should still be named—to see the great Cal Ripken Jr. play baseball. As any Cleveland fan, he’s had his heart ripped out over and over again, but was reborn when the Brownies took down Pittsburgh in 2009 with a wind chill of 12-below.
For theclevelandfan.com, Lewis covers the NFL Draft, which is a relief because he’d be spending way too many hours researching it either way.
