Senior Spotlight: Ryan Dirksen


Ryan Dirksen (22) plans to further his athletic and academic career at Western College University in Gunnison, Colorado this fall. After his 3A State Wrestling Championship last weekend, Dirksen reflects on his legacy as a leader at Eaton High School.

“I hope to leave a legacy of showing dedication and effort in everything I do. Excellence is a very important part of the Eaton acronym to me because this year I was undefeated in football and wrestling,” said Dirksen.

Dirksen has strived for excellence with a 13-0 record in football and a 48-0 record in wrestling. He also helps coach in Eaton’s little league wrestling program. His passion for his sports inspires those around him to uphold the excellence of an Eaton Red. Within the high school and community, Dirksen’s leadership positively impacts his peers.
