Q) What is the name of the Whitko football field?

ANSWER: Ryan Huff Memorial Field

Ryan Huff was a junior and the starting punter and back up fullback for the 1986 state champion football team. Ryan was killed in a multiple car traffic accident the weekend before the sectional championship game against Tippy Valley. Also involved in the accident, in a separate vehicle, was another Whitko football player and one of the starting defensive backs for the team. That player suffered injuries that sidelined him for the remainder of the season. The coaches and team pulled together in a family bond that still exists to this day. There is no doubt in anyone’s mind that 2 weeks later, Ryan played an integral part of Whitko’s regional championship game where they overcame a 4th quarter 20 point deficit to defeat Shenandoah 21-20. Ryan’s picture adorns the state championship trophy to this day….a team decision.
