Eielson Football Player Ryan Armour signs with Benedictine

By  | 

FAIRBANKS, Alaska - Another interior football player signed his national letter of intent today and will be taking his game to the Next Level.
Ryan Armour will be heading to Benedictine College. ​
Armour has played pretty much every position on the field for the Eielson Ravens but broke through as a running back and linebacker his senior season. ​
He was a first team all-state fullback and rushed for 300 or more yards multiple times. ​
Armour was also a first-team outside linebacker, helping lead the Ravens on both sides of the ball. ​
He will be joining a storied program, the Benedictine Ravens. ​
The Ravens, who are located in Atchison Kansas, finished at #2 in the NAIA in the post-season poll after going 13-2 and falling to Morningside in the National Championship game last year. ​
Armour talked after the signing about leaving one historic group of Ravens and joining another.
"One of the biggest things was that it's close to my aunt so I wanted to be close to my family. It's also a Catholic College so my parents like it, I like it, the campus was really beautiful. But all-together I liked their football team the most. Honestly I'm not really expecting to do much right now. I'm kind of just wanting to learn from their coach... A hall of fame coach. Be able to contribute at some point I don't know when that will be but I'll just try to do my part," said Armour.
