Lincoln Pius X Catholic High School

Bill Ryan

1991 Graduate | Hall of Fame Class of 2014

Bill Ryan starred in three sports at Pius X, retiring as the all-time leader in rushing yards in school history and is second in touchdowns scored in a career. Ryan is also 51st on the all-time basketball scoring charts and continues to hold five all-time records in the baseball program, including stolen bases and strikeouts recorded in a career.

After completing his high school career, Ryan played baseball at the University of Nebraska-Omaha and earned a degree in secondary education. After teaching and coaching for a year at Pius X, he joined the U.S. Border Patrol in 1999, and continues to work for the federal government while residing in Lincoln. Ryan and his wife Buffy have a daughter and three sons.

Ryan: “It’s incredibly humbling to be elected with this inaugural class. It’s hard to believe my name belongs with so many amazing athletes from our school’s storied history. I can’t recall a single game or season that stands out as better than any of the others in my career. When I think about it, the relationships and the memories cultivated in each sport are what mattered. Those friendships and the life lessons are what I remember most about Pius X. I’m proud that each time I stepped on the field, I always played hard, giving everything I had to my friends and coaches. I hope that’s the way they would all remember me.”
