Smithson Valley Lacrosse Club is elated to announce the selection of Ryland Huyghue as our new Varsity Head Coach and Vice President, Lacrosse Program. Coach Ryland brings a wealth of experience and knowledge that will assist SV Lacrosse in forging our program into a powerhouse.

 

Coach Ryland Huyghue BIO

From the age of seven, he has been a star athlete and dedicated to the sports of football and lacrosse. The first All-American lacrosse player to come out of his high school, Ryland was also the first African American from Long Island to reach first team All-American Status. In football he also reached All-American Status. He never came off the field playing running back, strong safety, punter, place kicker, field goal kicker, punt returner and kickoff returner. His high school team went undefeated for four straight years. He was inducted into his High School Hall Of Fame as one of the premier athletes to come out of his school. He went to Nassau Community Jr. College playing both football and lacrosse. After becoming the #1 recruit in the country for lacrosse Huyghue turned down several football scholarships from teams such as Ohio State, Iowa State, Rutgers University and several others, choosing to play lacrosse for University of Maryland.

 

Since 1982, Ryland spearheaded the development of lacrosse in California. As a five-time MVP player of Orange County Lacrosse Club, Ryland’s team won four state club championships and for fourteen straight years he was an all-star club lacrosse player. He was elected as the president of the California Lacrosse Association for twelve years and served as president of the Malibu Lacrosse Club for thirteen years.

 

Huyghue went back into coaching youth football for 14 years with both his sons. He coached his last 3 youth years, with Rap Star, Snoop Dogg and his sons. While coaching youth football, Huyghue was then asked to coach with the Southern California Steelers, a Semi Professional Football team. The Steelers dominated the minor league football for several years, at one point having a record of 66 wins and 8 losses with one national

Championship.

 

Maybe Ryland’s most amazing achievement was his involvement in re-instating exhibition lacrosse in the 1984 Olympics. With numerous meetings with Peter Uberoff and the Olympic Committees he helped pull off what many thought would never happen and made the Jim Thorpe Memorial Pow Wow & World Games by inviting for the first time the Native American Iroquois to their first World Lacrosse Tournament making it a huge success.

 

In 2009 Ryland was the head lacrosse coach for Cal State Fullerton, where in one season he took the team from losing every game the previous season to a much improved, above 500% season. His second year, Ryland took Cal State Fullerton to the MCLA Division II Championship making it to the quarter finals. Ryland coached and produced five All-American lacrosse players, three of which were Academic All-Americans as well.

 

Once again in 2012, Coach Huyghue does the unexpected or should we say expected! In his first and only season with Santa Monica Vikings High School Lacrosse Club, Coach Huyghue takes a below 500% team from the previous season to the High School Lacrosse State Championships! Coach Huyghue also entered his Santa Monica Vikings into the LA Watts Summer Games and went all the way to the Championship round losing in double overtime.

 

Ryland went on to coach at Granada Hills High School Lacrosse program. Coach Ryland took his team to the playoffs for the first time. Ryland made history in 2009 becoming the first African American head lacrosse coach to win a collegiate championship in the sport of lacrosse for Cal State Fullerton. He has also been head coach at UCLA, USC, UC Irvine, Cal State Long Beach, Pepperdine, and Occidental College.

 

In 2013 Coach Ryland accepted the role of head Lacrosse Coach at St. John Bosco Preparatory School. Bosco, who has never made the playoffs finds itself in 1st place in the conference with a 1st round bye into the playoffs. Bosco ended up going to the State Championship.

 

Mr. Huyghue serves as the Chairman of the Los Angeles US Lacrosse Men’s Game Post Season Awards. Overseeing the selection of six (6) award/recognition categories.

 

All-American

Assistant Coach of the Year

All-Academic

Man of the Year (Area and National)

Coach of the Year

Bob Scott Award

 

Coach Ryland is also president of The Pacific Lacrosse League (PLL), which is the Club high school league for Southern California. In 2012, Ryland was appointed Lacrosse Chairman of the LA Watts Summer Games, which has been in existence since 1968. With over 4,000 kids participating in a variety of sports. Ryland is responsible for the lacrosse games, consisting of a sixteen tournament bracket.

 

 “Ryland’s leadership skills, winning attitude and his dedication to giving back to the community are a major asset to the International Diversity Lacrosse Council, a nonprofit 501 C3 dedicated to introducing the sport of lacrosse to the inner cities. We are also very pleased that he shares our dedication to helping kids learn a great sport that builds good health and character. All his adult life, Ryland has been a youth coach for basketball, football, and lacrosse”, says Drew Pannell, Co-Founder and Vice President of the International Diversity Lacrosse Council. www.diversitylacrosse.org
