Faces of Ferris: Ryan Hodges

Aug. 12, 2019;

The excellent level of success offered by Ferris State University’s football team in the last seven seasons has made other college programs watchful, and active in their attempts to emulate those achievements.

… “Coach Brady and I had a decade of working together with Coach Annese from our days at Grand Rapids Community College then on to Ferris,” (Ryan) Hodges said. “For four of the previous five seasons, we shared the coordinator’s duties on defense and divided up administrative roles and other behind-the-scenes work for the program. After combining much of my effort with Ryan, it called for some quick adjustment, since I now have more responsibilities.”
