Logan Ryan is a class act
With this being safety Logan Ryan’s first season with the New York Giants, it’s been easy to see what a leader and class act he is on and off the field.
Unfortunately, Ryan was a part of the play that knocked Dallas Cowboys’ quarterback Dak Prescott out for the season during their first meeting. At the time he voiced how sick he was to see Prescott get injured.
“I hope he comes back. I hope he gets $500 million,” Ryan told reporters after the Giants week five loss to the Cowboys “He deserves it. Honestly, that was the worst thing that happened today. I got a sick taste in my stomach for it.”
Ryan says he reached out to Dak soon after and ended up sending him some books.
“I think I spoke about that when it happened. I reached out to him that night, felt pretty bad about that. Obviously, it’s football, but my people reached out, I sent him a couple books,” Ryan told reporters this week, via Giants Wire. “I had a similar injury a couple years ago; I broke my fibula having a really good year and I snapped my leg on a fluke play. It really made me a better player, it made me become maniacal with my workouts, maniacal with my training. It was my first-time missing football games, so I came back with just a deeper level of appreciation for the game and a deeper hunger and a deeper work ethic. I really started waking up earlier.
“I reached out to Dak soon after that. Haven’t been in touch much since -– obviously we’re both pretty busy human beings at this time of the year -– but I wish him the best of luck and I’m sure he’s having a great recovery from what I’ve heard and what I’ve seen.”
It’s always funny to hear how much fans hate their favorite team’s arch rival, but when it comes to the players they have love for one another when the games are all said and done and I think that’s great.
I really hope Dak does heal up and come back better than ever because as someone who watches and enjoys football, I respect his talent and honestly believe he’s the best quarterback in the NFC East right now. The Cowboys need to pay him and make sure he sticks around.
