Ryon King spends most of his free time playing sports and at Spearville High School he played football, basketball and baseball.

    When asked what sport he likes best, he replies football with no hesitation.

“Football, by far,” King said. “You can hit people in it.”

    So it is of no surprise that he will play football in junior college as he signed a letter of intent to play football at Dodge City Community College.

    “I felt like it was a good fit for me,” King said. “(I think I will) get a chance play more.”

    “I felt like it was a good fit for me,” King said. “(I think I will) get a chance play more.”
    On the football field, King is one that can do it all.
    In high school, he lined up on both side of the ball and played quarterback, fullback, linebacker and defensive end.
    “I actually prefer offense because I like to run over people,” King said.
    He added he played where his team needed him and that changed every year as he played for three different coaches in high school.
    As a junior, he played quarterback as Spearville ran the spread and as a senior, he was fullback in a ground-oriented scheme.
    At Spearville, he scored 24 touchdowns and threw for 20 more, rushed for 1,611 yards and passed for 1,473.   
On defense he made 202 tackles and had 13 takeaways.
