Ryan Philip Kuehl (born January 18, 1972 in Washington, D.C.) is a former American football long snapper.

Early years

Kuehl attended Walt Whitman High School in Bethesda, Maryland, where he was a prep All-American selection as a senior. One of Kuehl's notable high school achievements was scoring the Vikings' only playoff touchdown in nearly 20 years on a late game scoring strike from quarterback Andy Eichberg in the 1988 MD state playoff loss to the Randallstown Rams. It was the Vikings' only score that day.

Kuehl was a four-year letterman at the University of Virginia and was named second team All-ACC at defensive tackle (1994).

NFL career

Kuehl retired from the NFL after a ruptured Achilles' tendon during the 2007 preseason. Although he didn't play during the season, he earned a ring as a member of the Super Bowl XLII winning team.

Post-NFL career

After football, Kuehl earned an MBA from American University and joined Under Armour in 2009. As vice president of sports marketing in sponsorships, he gave Jordan Spieth a ten-year deal with the company in 2015, replacing the company's original four-year contract from 2013.
