Ryan Clady has been recognized as an example for youth football players because of his fundamentals.
USA Football, the sport’s national governing body on youth and amateur levels, and the NFL Players Association selected Clady along with 25 other NFL players to the inaugural USA Football/NFLPA “All-Fundamentals” Team. This 26-man roster honors the NFL’s most fundamentally-sound players who also commit themselves to service in their communities.
Clady was selected as an example particularly for aspiring offensive tackles to emulate because of his quick hands in pass protection.
In addition to his fundamentally-strong play, Clady does exemplary work in the Boise, Idaho, community. His efforts have benefitted the Ada County (Idaho) Sheriff’s Employees Association and many other local causes.
As part of this honor, Clady will designate a youth or high school football program to receive a $1,500 equipment grant from USA Football. He will also receive a pewter-dipped “All-Fundamentals” Team helmet trophy produced by Riddell, USA Football’s official helmet and equipment partner.
