May 2, 2018

As president, and on behalf of the Board of Trustees, faculty, staff, and administration of De La Salle High School, I am pleased to announce that Ryan Manale, De La Salle’s head football coach for the last six years and interim athletic director since April 3, 2018, has accepted the position of permanent athletic director effective immediately. Ryan will continue to serve as head football coach.

Ryan has displayed excellent vision and leadership since assuming the interim athletic director’s role, and we are very excited about the future of our athletic department under Ryan’s vision, leadership, and commitment to advance the mission of De La Salle in the areas of student life and school growth.

In accepting the permanent position, Ryan states: “It is an honor to lead the De La Salle athletic department. I am grateful for the last six years and for the opportunity ahead to help us continue our march in excellence. I am excited to “Lead On” and to do everything in my power to elevate the quality of our fourteen athletic teams, in addition to the cheerleading and dance programs. It is a great time to be a Cavalier!”
St. John Baptist de La Salle, pray for us.
Live Jesus in our hearts, forever.

Best and blessings,
