John Ryberg’s hometown is Houston, Texas. He attended high school at Cedar Rapids Xavier in Iowa, going on to earn a Bachelor’s degree in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Iowa. John did not begin playing rugby until he was 21, when he joined the University of Iowa RFC, after being introduced to the sport by a friend. He fell in love with rugby after attending his first practice. He has lived in Paris and London, and once had a pet goose named Dominique that he raised from a gosling and taught to fly. In MLR, John is motivated to play at the highest level, with and against the best ruggers in the country.
