“We are devastated to have lost a member of our Rebel family,” said first-year UNLV football head coach Barry Odom via press release. “While I had the honor of knowing Ryan for only a couple of months, he already stood out to our coaching staff as an incredible person, student and teammate. Our condolences and prayers go out to Ryan’s family as we grieve along with them over this tremendous loss.”
