Ryan Ramczyk (RAM-check; born c. 1994) is an American football offensive tackle for the Wisconsin Badgers. A native of Stevens Point, Wisconsin, Ramczyk attended four different schools before transferring to Wisconsin–Madison in 2014, where he became an All-American lineman for the Badgers.
High school career
Ramczyk attended Stevens Point Area Senior High School in Stevens Point, Wisconsin, where he was a First Team All-State selections by the Wisconsin Football Coaches Association in 2011, and was invited to play in the 2012 WFCA All-Star Game in Oshkosh. He turned down a scholarship offer from Pittsburgh's first-year head coach Paul Chryst to attend Division-II school Winona State.
Leaving Winona State before the football season began, Ramczyk enrolled first at Madison Area Technical College, then Mid-State Technical College in Stevens Point, for one semester each. In 2013, he transferred to the University of Wisconsin–Stevens Point, where his former high school coach had taken a job on the football staff. In what was technically his freshman season, Ramczyk played in all 10 games and was named Second Team All-Wisconsin Intercollegiate Athletic Conference. The following season, he earned First Team All-WIAC honors.
When Paul Chryst became head coach at Wisconsin–Madison, Ramczyk reached out and decided to transfer. After sitting out the 2015 season due to NCAA transfer rules, he was named the starter at left tackle for 2016, succeeding Tyler Marz. Ramczyk was named First Team All-Big Ten on November 30, 2016.
