My name is Ryan Glover, the digital editor of the Talon. In school, I am a head talent on our morning announcements, and behind the scenes, I work the camera. Also, I am part of student counsel, peer mediation, TSA, and media club. Outside of school, I play three sports: soccer, football, and tennis. Sports take over my world because when I am not at a practice or the game, I am leading the student section at other sporting events or cheering from the sidelines as our school’s mascot. After high school, I plan to attend a 4-year college to major in sports broadcasting. If you can’t find me anywhere at school, you can find me at home practicing my hidden talents juggling knives or blowing people’s minds with magic tricks.
