“A huge welcome goes out to the newest member of the Golden Bears Football coaching staff. Ryan Brower joins us as both a receivers coach and as our new camp coordinator. Ryan will bring great energy and enthusiasm to a young and talented receiving group. His expertise in running high level camps is also extensive. The architect of the Peak School of Football, Ryan will bring all of the valuable lessons he has learned in building that program from the ground up. Get ready for the Golden Bears Camp system to grow in both programming options and quality under Ryan’s guidance!”
