Ryan Gundry

Junior High Head Coach


Junior High Head Coach Ryan Gundry, who also serves as an assistant varsity coach, joined the Northside Lions in 2020. He and his wife, Cari, have 11 children. As a boy, Ryan moved to Arlington, Texas, and quickly realized that football was the greatest sport ever invented.

He has coached little league football for 19 years and during that time has been able to coach 9 of his children – including 3 daughters – in tackle football and loves helping young players learn and excel at football. He believes that the lessons learned on the football field apply not only to sports, but to life in general.

Hard work, sacrifice, and teamwork all come together to make a good team great. He is very grateful to be part of an organization that mixes football fundamentals and toughness with Christian values. He believes praying before practice and games and holding Thursday devotions help us put Christ first and keep things in the proper perspective.
