Ryan Petrasek is the next coach for Panthers Wrocław

Another American coach joins the coaching staff of the Wrocław Panthers. Ryan Petrasek will take on the role of wide receivers coach at the club, replacing Luc Cornier, who had to resign from his position due to professional reasons.

Ryan Petrasek
is a graduate of the prestigious Virginia Tech university. In 2020, he began working with players at Old Dominion University, followed by Liberty University. In the 2022 season, he served as the tight ends coach at Pike Road High School. Now he will start working with the wide receivers of the Wrocław Panthers.

I couldn't be more excited for the opportunity to coach in Wroclaw and be a part of this community! The past 2 years, I've wanted to experience day-to-day life in Europe and the opportunity to coach in Wroclaw will allow me to be immersed in the community while striving for an ELF Championship. Coach Christensen's vision for the team is to build the premier ELF program and I'm excited to build a football fan base like we've seen in America. Since being a part of this staff I've been very impressed with the structure of the organization and the plans in place to create a winning culture. I've been blessed to work with some highly successful coaches, and I can say that my experience so far with this staff has exceeded expectations. To the fans, we need your support! You make the games exciting! Football is a sport that enables fans to have a huge influence over the game by being so loud that the opponent can't communicate in critical situations. You have the ability to truly impact the game, and we can't create the best product without you. I want to see the stands filled to the brim and we are going to strive to put a product on the field that is electric! Petrasek himself announces.

Ryan Petrasek is the eighth name on the coaching staff of the Wrocław Panthers for the 2024 season. In addition to head coach Dave Christensen, the staff also includes Craig Kuligowski (DC), Gabe Landa (OC), Sam Gooding (OL Coach), Marquis Griffin (DB Coach), Michael Sam (DL Coach), and Vinny LoVerde (TE Coach).

The Wrocław Panthers will kick off the European League of Football season on May 26th with an exciting game at Tarczyński Arena. Their opponents will be guests from the German capital - the Berlin Thunder team. Tickets for this event are already on sale.
