Teacher Spotlight: Coach Ryan Stuart
by Dylan Beck
Coach Stuart was born in Salt Lake City, Utah. He attended Jordan High School and the University of Utah.
On his first day of high school, he was excited for basketball.
He became a coach and is grateful that he was lucky enough to become a PE teacher. His favorite moments in teaching are when he sees someone with no interest in the current sport/activity get involved and have fun.
Coach Stuart’s role model is his dad.
“My dad had been a hard-working man his whole life,” Coach Stuart said. ‘He loves his kids and even at 84, he works hard for his family and my mom.”
Coach Stuart’s motto, not just basketball but in life, is “Before you get better, you have to look like an idiot.”
Coach Stuart recently led the Marshals to their 2nd play-in game in his two years of coaching and is looking forward to many years of coaching ahead.
