McNeil signs with Coast Guard Academy

April 13, 2012

PLYMOUTH — Plymouth senior Ryan McNeil isn’t one to take the easy road.
The 6’4” shooting guard was fine-tuning his shot long before the Pilgrims started their 2011-12 campaign. During the season, the co-MVP helped set the pace for his teammates at practice and on the game floor, a pace which helped push Plymouth to a 16-6 finish.
McNeil signed on to play basketball at the U.S. Coast Guard Academy this week, and if the demands of a regular collegiate student-athlete aren’t enough, adding on the demands of attending a service academy makes for an especially challenging experience.
