 This page details much of the football history of Archbishop Ryan High

  If corrections are needed, please contact
Ted Silary at tedtee307@yahoo.com
and provide verification of new information, if possible. Thanks!
  Some research is still being conducted/cross-checked.
  (Information prior to 1976 was provided mostly by Dr. Roger B. Saylor,
a famed Pennsylvania football historian. He passed away in 2013.)

RECAPS OF CHAMPIONSHIP WINS . . .

1988
At Villanova Stadium
Ryan 6, Carroll 0
    Matt Knowles kicked field goals of 24 and 42 yards as Ryan won
the CL's first TD-less title game since North and Salesianum battled to
a scoreless tie in 1934. Coach John Quinn finally bagged a championship
in his 13th Ryan season spread over three stints. Frank Wycheck
accumulated 177 yards on 24 carries and added 58 yards on returns. Bill
Sachs passed 6-for-13 for 63 yards.
1990
At Villanova Stadium
Ryan 20, Carroll 13 (OT)
    Jamie Sutton passed 15 yards to Jim Stott for the decisive score
as Ryan won the first CL title game to go overtime. Brian Hamill kicked
field goals of 32 and 39 yards, setting a one-season, city-league record
with 11 (in 16 attempts). Mark Ostaszewski rushed 35 times for 130
yards. For Carroll, Sean McGarvey returned a kickoff 86 yards for a TD
and star lineman Ray Kane, forced to sit out with a severe knee injury,
was presented a game ball by first-year Ryan coach Glen Galeone.
1991
At La Salle University
Ryan 13, St. James 0
    Mike Erbrick gained 147 yards on 31 carries and Brian Hamill
kicked field goals of 28 and 34 yards. Erbrick finished the season with
1,774 yards, the No. 2 total in CL history, and 14 TDs. The Raiders
became the first CL team in 29 years to go through the playoffs unscored
upon and they allowed just 29 points in 10 games against CL opposition
-- the best effort since O'Hara's 23 in '79. In 20 games against CL
opposition in '90 and '91, Ryan yielded just one rushing TD.
1992
At La Salle University
Ryan 25, Roman 8
    Gene McAleer (six tackles) and Dave McDonald (three
interceptions) led a defense that limited Roman to 60 yards total
offense and gave Ryan its first unbeaten season (12-0-1) in 25 years of
CL competition. McDonald returned one of his pilfers for a 34-yard TD.
Jaime Brown carried 24 times for 72 yards and a score. Eugene Small ran
for Roman's TD.
1993
At La Salle University
Ryan 10, Carroll 0
    Bill McVey ran 5 yards for a TD on a tight-end reverse and Kevin
Wyszynski kicked a 36-yard field goal as Ryan became the first CL team
to finish unbeaten against league opposition for a fourth consecutive
year (38-0-2). In those 40 games, assistant Lee Marvel's defense allowed
3.6 points per game and posted 21 shutouts. Jaime Brown rushed 22 times
for 76 yards and caught a 37-yard pass from Adrian Dumchus in the TD
drive.
