There is an emerging senior defenseman in the program, a man who is a product of physical diligence and schematic development. Ryan's personal quest to improve his strength while maintaining his weight has been a successful quest. For two years now Ryan has made significant progress in the weight room while improving his running. With the loss of two key men at close defense in 2008, Ryan has made up his mind that he will be a starter in 2009. And if the fall is a good indicator, Ryan is well on his way to playing a critical role for the team defense...2008: Saw action in nine games for the Bears...2007: Saw action in 13 of 14 games for the Bears...Picked-up three ground balls...2006: Saw action in two games for the Bears...Secondary School Background: A graduate of St. Stephens & St. Agnes where he lettered in lacrosse (4) and basketball (2)...Lacrosse team captain and MVP as a senior...Top 205 Lacrosse Camp All-Star...Honorable mention Washington Post All-metro Team...First team Washington Examiner Metro...Brown University and University of Virginia Camp All-Star...Dean's List student...Personal: The son of Dan and Cindy Cassil of Alexandria...Enjoys snowboarding, golf and tennis...Economics/Political Science concentrator.
