Ryan Priest

Ryan N. Priest had a prolific football career at Lafayette College, gaining 2,477 yards and averaging 5.1 yards per carry in his first three seasons as a Leopard.


Priest had 23 touchdowns and 4,818 all-purpose yards (running, receiving, and kickoff and punt returns) while at Lafayette, earning team Rookie of the Year laurels in 1982, as well as team MVP honors in 1983 and 1984. As a freshman he set a long-standing Lafayette record with a 92-yard punt return and also scored a touchdown against Lehigh. An injury slowed him up his senior season and he ended his Lafayette career with 2,597 rushing yards, finishing with the fourth-best rushing total in Lafayette football history.

Lafayette Athletics, as a partner in the mission of the College, provides an incredibly effective learning experience for student-athletes through competitive NCAA Division I athletics. Lafayette sponsors 23 varsity sports with more than 600 student-athletes.
