CHAPEL HILL, N.C. -- In the fall of 2013, North Carolina's coaching staff gave young Ryan Switzer a chance to prove himself. He took the opportunity and ran with it, literally.
Switzer was named first team All-America as a punt returner/specialist, earned first-team All-ACC honors, and tied the NCAA record with five punt returns for touchdowns - all during his freshman season. Since then, he has grown not only as an athlete, but also as a man.
As he prepares for his final game in the UNC uniform, Switzer said the coaching staff has not let up on pushing him to continue to improve his skillset - a reminder that his last game as a Tar Heel may lead to many pro games in his future.
