Ray played for the University of Maine football team from 1992-1996 where he was a three-year starter on the offensive line. Prior to college he honed his playing skills locally at Manchester Memorial High School.

"Ryan and Mark have been great assets to the Wolves organization," said Wolves General Manager Angelo Mazzella. "They are both role models on and off the field and I'm extremely pleased to have them back representing the Wolves."

Page, a Londonderry native, will enter his fourth season with the Manchester Wolves as their Assistant Offensive/Defensive Line Coach. Page's main duties include working with the both the offensive and defensive lineman and helping Wolves Head Coach Ben Bennett recruit talent in the off-season.
