Dutch Fork product named First Team All-SoCon

Free Safety Hugh Ryan helped patrol the seconday for a Furman defense that was quite productive when it came to forcing turnovers.

GREENVILLE, S.C. — After finishing second in the Southern Conference and earning its first home playoff game since 2005, the Furman Paladins placed 14 players on the All-Southern Conference teams.

Former News19 Player of the Week and Dutch Fork graduate Hugh Ryan was named First Team All-SoCon.

A redshirt junior, the free safety was twice named SoCon Defensive Player of the Week this year, along with the league's player of the month for October. He is Furman's second leading tackler with 61 stops, and his four interceptions, three of which came in successive wins over Western Carolina, VMI, and Chattanooga, topped a Paladin defense that ranks eighth nationally in interceptions (16) and fourth in turnovers gained (24).
