Apr 15, 2016 08:31AM ● By Wendy Erlien
Four months after Derrin Lamker announced he would not be returning as the head coach for the Osseo Senior High School Football team, a new coach has been named and is ready to begin preparing for the next season. 

Osseo Senior High announced Ryan Stockhaus as the new head football coach Friday morning.

Stockhaus is a 2008 Graduate of Augsburg College with a B.A. in Health/Physical Education. At Augsburg, he was a two-sport athlete playing defensive back for the football team and middle infield/utility for the baseball team. He earned his teaching license and masters in Special Education (EBD) from Bethel University. For the past four years he has served as the Dean of Students and is a Special Education teacher for the Minneapolis Public School District.  Currently he is on the instructional leadership team, site coordinator for social and emotional learning, and implemented the student support/behavior model.

Ryan has coached football for 11 years, most recently as the Defensive and Special Teams Coordinator at Minneapolis Southwest and the Academy of Holy Angels.

“The Osseo community has a rich history of support for its students. The football program is no exception. I am thrilled and humbled to have been selected to lead such a great, dedicated group of young athletes," Stockhaus said. "I am excited to work with the Osseo Football Association, along with Mr. Lehan, Mr. Quan and the coaching staff to continue to build a foundation for the youth in the community and the football program.”

Stockhaus will have two meet and greet sessions with parents on Saturday, April 16. The first will be at 9:30 a.m. at the Oriole Fitness Center and the second at 10:30 a.m. at the OFA Youth Football Clinic at the Maple Grove Dome.
