RYAN WELLER GAVE UP ONE LOVE TO FOLLOW ANOTHER

RYAN WELLER GAVE UP ONE LOVE TO FOLLOW ANOTHER
Kutztown University redshirt-junior Ryan Weller has had two loves since he was a kid: his family and baseball. Like many young boys, Weller grew up loving to play sports, in particular, baseball. But he also had another affinity, the military. With strong family and friendly ties to each, Weller envisioned himself doing both for as long as he was able to and Kutztown University allowed him to fulfill his dream.
