ELK GROVE, Calif. – December 13, 2018 – The football coach selection committee at Laguna Creek High School has chosen Ryan Nill, a Class of 2006 graduate, to lead the Cardinal’s football program as Head Varsity Football Coach. Principal Doug Craig stated, “Having been a Laguna Creek Cardinal since he was a young boy, Ryan lives and breathes Cardinal Red. Young Ryan was part of the team during the school’s opening season, running around the sidelines while his dad was coaching to then graduating from Laguna Creek. ”
Coach Nill started his time with the Laguna Creek High School football program at a young age as the team’s first waterboy in 1994, the school’s inaugural year. Nill also was part of the first Cardinal football team to win the All Delta League Championship in 2005 and Team Defensive Most Valuable Player.
Principal Craig continues, “We look forward to having Coach Nill lead our student-athletes to compete with character for many years to come!” Once on board, one of Nill’s first tasks will be to develop a transition plan and identify the assisting coaching staff.
Nill joined the Laguna Creek High School faculty earlier this school year to teach physical education and weightlifting. He was also the head Junior Varsity Coach with an impressive record with seven wins and three losses. Previously, Nill taught adaptive physical education at Soledad High School from 2013 – 2018 and was a defensive coordinator coach from 2014-2017. Nill’s football team was named MTAL League Championships during the 2015 and 2017 football seasons. In 2016, Nill’s team was also named Central Coast Section Championship.
