Former Colonial, Beharry joins men's soccer staff
TORONTO - The Rams men's soccer team has announced the hiring of Shane Beharry as an assistant coach for the 2019 fall season.
Beharry is a former Division 1 athlete transfer who attended Robert Morris University (Pittsburgh, PA) with a B.A major in Communication and a concentration in Advertising. Beharry graduated with magna cum laude honors from RMU in 2012. In his lone year in Canada, Beharry attended York University in which he was a member of the Lions 2008 CIS National Championship team. Beharry has professional playing experience both in Asia and in the United States following his days at RMU as a student-athlete.
Since 2017, Beharry has been an active member of the Ryerson Athletics and Recreation department fulfilling many roles that have presented themselves to him. A sole supervisor for Rams Spirit Wear, Beharry was able to assert himself in the department which lead to a partnership/sponsorship position. During this time, he was the primary creator of the now famous "I Am Ryerson" campaign that helped raise funds as part of the Scotiabank Marathon/500 Smile Challenge which sent 500 kids to a Ryerson Summer Camp.
Currently a member of the Ryerson Day Camps leadership team, Beharry acts as a Program Specialist and has demonstrated the ability to provide leadership and development to mentor youth in the GTA.
"It's a complete honour to represent Ryerson and uphold the high standards the direction this University is moving towards," said Beharry. "I am looking forward to learning as much as possible from the experience Coach Prostran and Coach Kiarash demonstrate each and every day to further my personal growth as a leader and to develop my professional career. I am humbled and excited for this new challenge and ready for all tasks that present itself in the future. I would like to give an extended thanks to Coach Prostran for giving me this opportunity and look forward to a memorable season ahead. Let's go Rams!"
