Caroline Ryals

Co-VP Viewing parties

Caroline Ryals is a Tampa native who grew up in a family that bleeds orange and blue.  She developed her love for the Swamp from an early age when she would travel to Gainesville with her parents.  Her favorite parts of the game are the pregame “Gator” spell-out and when the Gators run on the field, because the excitement and the energy of the players, coaches, band members and fans are infectious. 

While Caroline chose to attend the University of Richmond for her college studies, her blood still ran orange and blue, as her grandfather, her mother, her aunt and her sister graduated from UF.  She could be found on Saturdays watching the Gator games in her dorm room and texting her parents who were always in attendance at the games. 

After college graduation in 2013, she moved to NYC and immediately joined Gotham Gators, where she found an incredible group of fans who welcomed her and with whom she still shares every Gator gameday.

Outside of cheering on the Gators, Caroline serves as a running guide for disabled athletes through Achilles International.  She also loves swimming on Masters swim team, trying new workout classes,  attending Broadway shows, and watching the Yankees.  Caroline is an active member of the New York Junior League and the Covenant House Young Professionals Board.   She is employed by AT&T and works in advertising operations on the DIRECTV platform.

Caroline is so excited to be a part of the Gotham Gators board and give back to the organization that has given her so much, including her first friends in NYC. She can be reached at
