Ryan Curtis is a transfer who came after his first semester and joined the Eagles squad. Ryan is an outfielder with tremendous speed, which is one of the positions the eagles were lacking going into the season. Curtis worked hard in the few weeks he was at Eastern and was ready to be back competing on the field. A natural competitor he earned a start in the Eagles first game and batted leadoff in the first game. He made an impact right away, from hitting triples and doubles, to chasing fly ball and making plays defensively.

His explosiveness, cutting ability and straight-line speed is something to behold. In theory, these traits would allow him to play receiver at the next level in the NFL. He could play on the outside or in the slot, and be just fine.
