Ryan McFadden 

Ryan McFadden is the Founder/Editor-In-Chief of Inside The Locker Room. The Maryland native attended DeMatha Catholic High School, where he got into journalism.

 Ryan was a sports writer for DeMatha’s student newspaper, The DeMatha Stagline and did commentating for DeMatha Television, an online site that broadcast all DeMatha home sporting events.

After graduating from DeMatha, Ryan went to Iona College in New York, where he is a Mass Communications major with a concentration in Journalism. He is currently the sports editor, and covers the Iona College men’s basketball team for The Ionian, the student newspaper.  Ryan is also a staff writer for Federal Baseball, a SB Nation site that covers the Washington Nationals.

More of his work could be found on Testudo Times, Terrapin Station MD and the Montgomery County Sentinel.

Ryan is a huge fan of the Washington Wizards, Washington Redskins, Washington Nationals, and is trying to get into Washington Capitals’ hockey. When Ryan is not covering sports, or debating about who’s a better point guard John Wall or Kyrie Irving, he is playing video games with his college roommates. 

Ryan hopes that one day he can work for a major sports network as a writer/analyst, while aspiring to be an author and screenwriter.
