In football, all young men have a chance of success. In football, the more talented player is not always the best player. In football, with the correct attitude and work ethic, any young man can compete. In football, leaders are born and confidence is built. In football, attitudes can be adjusted and low self-esteem can be lifted. In football, all young men get a chance at success.

Ryle Names Mike Engler new Head football coach

Written by
Richard Skinner
Ryle High School went to Lexington to land the fourth head football coach in its 22-year history.
Ryle athletic director Jim Demler made it official Tuesday by announcing in a press release Lexington Catholic offensive coordinator Mike Engler as the new head coach, replacing Bryson Warner, who resigned on Dec. 2 after 11 seasons.
Engler had been an assistant at Lexington Catholic since 1991 and had been assistant head coach and offensive coordinator during his tenure. He helped lead the Knights to a Class 3A state title in 2005 and a Class 4A state title in 2007. Lexington Catholic posted a 218-68 record (.762 winning percentage) during Engler’s tenure.
“Mike has a tremendous football background and a great reputation across the state as an excellent coach,” Demler said. “He comes from a well-respected, tradition-rich program in Lexington Catholic and we feel like he is a great fit to lead our football team.”
Engler met with Ryle’s players on Tuesday.
“My family and I are very excited about the opportunity to become part of the Ryle community,” Engler said in the press release. “We will play an exciting, up-tempo brand of football. I believe the community will be pleased with what they will see in the Ryle football program. Ryle has a great group of kids who will have a chance to be successful both on and off of the field.”
Warner compiled a 73-58 record, and his 2006 team finished as state runner-up in Class 4A.
