Ryan Sharp
Senior Assistant Sports Editor

Ryan Sharp is a lifelong Oklahoman but was born in Texas, something he doesn't share too often with his OU- and OSU-loyal friends.

Ryan spent a good chunk of his early childhood in southeast Oklahoma, before moving to Shawnee, where he graduated from Bethel High School. He is a 2005 graduate of Oklahoma State University, where he was a member of the OSU marching and spirit bands.

Ryan joined The Oklahoman as a part-time copy editor in the fall of 2004 after interning at The Indianapolis Star. After a short stint as a copy editor and designer, Ryan was named an assistant sports editor for colleges, outdoors and golf in 2006.

Ryan lives in Bethel Acres with his wife, Wendy, and their son, Matthew.
