Ryan Zech 2015
Ryan Zech wins the Viking Award for the 2015 season. As a senior Captain Ryan came into the season to earn his 4th Varsity letter. His leadership both on the field and off the field along with his skill also earned him the MVP award . He was 1st team all GWOC south and 1st team All Greater Dayton South this season as well.
Ryan played mostly defense in his 4 years as a Viking but his senior season he played in the midfield as well. He had 3 goals and 3 assists leading the team in offensive points. He was instrumental in beating West Carrollton all 4 years to keep the Gary Kimmel Traveling Trophy.
All these awards while deserving are a shadow to the character this young man has. The way he carries himself on and off the field , his respect for his teammates, coaches , fans , opposing teams , opposing coaches and the referees is some of the many things that set him above his teammates for this award.
