QB Ryan Stanley stepping up as FAMU’s starter

TALLAHASSEE, Florida -- Ryan Stanley had eight scholarship offers at the conclusion of his high school career at Charles W. Flanagan High in Pembroke Pines.

He was a three-star athlete, the 2015 Offensive Player of the Year in Broward County, throwing for more than 2,500 yards in 2014.

He threw for more than 2,300 yards in 2012 and 2013 and owns the Broward County high school record for completions in a game (37), which included a 99-yard pass for a touchdown.

So, why did the redshirt freshman from Hollywood choose to come to Florida A&M, which tangles today with Hampton in the Rattlers’ homecoming game at 3 p.m. at Bragg Stadium?

By the time he’d decided to commit to another university that offered him, such as Western Kentucky and Eastern Michigan, other quarterbacks had already committed before him; he lost both scholarship offers.
