Sean Ryan Memorial Classic back for a fifth year

April 27, 2010

The fifth annual Sean Ryan Memorial Flag Football Classic will take place Saturday, June 12, at Lansing Middle School.

Cost for the six-on-six tournament is $20 per player and includes a T-shirt. Registration closes June 7.

Ryan was a 2003 graduate of Lansing High School who was killed in an automobile accident in 2006. Friends started the flag football tournament that summer to keep his memory alive. Proceeds from the tournament go to the Sean Ryan Scholarship Fund. The scholarship is presented to a senior Lansing High School football player.

The tournament has drawn players from Lansing, Leavenworth, Tonganoxie, Basehor, Bonner Springs and Lawrence in recent years.
