After spending the last four years as an assistant with the Carson High football program, Ryan Boshard has been promoted to head coach.
The decision was confirmed Friday morning by Senator athletic director Blair Roman, who stepped down after 14 years as head football coach following the conclusion of the fall 2021 season.
Boshard has spent 17 years coaching and, prior to linking up with the Senators, spent five seasons in various roles with Liberty High School in Las Vegas under Richard Muraco.
After coaching at Liberty, Boshard spent a season as the associate head coach at Gustine High School in California.
Boshard said his first memories of Carson City date back to 1990 when he had a chance to work in town for a summer.
“I fell in love with the area and the people. Fast forward 28 years, I finally got the chance to move here with my family to Carson,” said Boshard.
Like his time at Liberty, Boshard has served in a number of roles since joining the Senator staff.
Last season he served as the offensive coordinator with previous roles being offensive line coach, defensive backs coach and in his first season as JV defensive coordinator.
“I cut my teeth with Blair, starting out wherever he needed me to be. From there, I was up front and forward with him that I wanted to take over as the head coach,” said Boshard. “Hopefully, if everything runs right, and by the praise of God it happened.
“Blair is a huge mentor in my success, learning from him in the different capacities in how to be a coach will always be something I can take forward and cherish,” added Boshard.
The new head coach says he thinks he is more of an offensive-minded coach and said he first fell in love with coaching by bringing up his sons in youth league with the Henderson Cowboys.
Boshard takes over a Senator team that went 3-6 in the fall and looked vastly improved from its spring season in 2021.
“I think I’ve got a really good relationship with them. This group of kids is probably second to none with their hard work and commitment. I think they’ll do anything and everything it takes to be a program team and compete at the highest level,” said Boshard.
Along with continuing to see strides on the field, the new Senator head man says he wants his legacy to be even greater off of the field.
“What I want for my legacy to be, is to mold the young men into men that will be great contributors to society and hopefully they use that football wisdom to help be that man,” said Boshard.
Boshard also said he will not be continuing his role as an assistant with the Carson High softball team.
