Coach Ryan Ward signs extension with Youngstown Phantoms

“I’ve always felt Youngstown can be a really special place and I think the group of people that we have here within the organization, from our ownership, (Bruce) Zoldan and (Murry) Gunty, to our president Andrew Goldman, to our GMs (Jason Deskins and Ryan Kosecki), to our scouting staff, to our coaching staff, to our players, our billet families, and season ticket holders, it’s an extremely special place."

“Getting to know the fabric of Youngstown and being a part of this city and obviously having the year that we had last year, it’s been such a special time and we’re super thankful as a family. There’s not a place I would rather be in the entire world than here with the Phantoms. I’m super thankful for the faith that they’ve shown in us, myself and our staff, with our plan and our vision. I’m excited to be in Youngstown and be a part of Youngstown for the foreseeable future.”
