One of the top overall athletes in the state of Kansas is headed to Wichita State for track and field. Senior Ryan Schadler of Hesston high school made his verbal committment on Monday to participate in track and field at Wichita State University.
Schadler chose track and field at Wichita State over walking on for football at Kansas State University. "The program itself is top notch, amazing coaches that care about you", Schadler said.
"Wichita State is a great family atmosphere and they also had my college major", Schadler said. Schadler qualified for the state track meet last season in four events (100, 200, 400, Long Jump). Schadler had other division I looks in track and field and several smaller colleges after him for football and track.
Schadler, who was a first team all-state selection at running back for the Swathers this past fall, had 2,423 rushing yards and 42 total touchdowns. Schadlers 524 rushing yards against El Dorado this season rank second all-time in the state of Kansas.
Schadler features 4.5 speed in the forty yard dash and did 16 reps on the 185 pound bench press at last summers Kansas Shrine Bowl Combine. Schadler was also selected to participate on the West squad for the 2014 Shrine Bowl.
