Andy Ryan "sold a lot of cars" when he owned an automobile dealership in Winchester, but not much is known about his status as an athlete.
Now a stock broker, Ryan played football at the University of Kentucky from 1977-80 and played alongside past greats such as Art Still and others.
Ryan recalled his past experiences during a visit to the Winchester Rotary Club Friday. Ryan said his time at Kentucky paved his way to a successful career in the private sector.
"The University of Kentucky influenced me," Ryan said in his opening remarks. "I think about if I hadn't gone to the University of Kentucky how different my life would have been."
