Career[edit]

Professional[edit]

Ring was drafted in the second round (17th overall) of the 2009 MLS SuperDraft by the San Jose Earthquakes.[1] He signed with the club a year later after sitting out the 2009 season with a hip injury.[2]

He made his professional debut on April 24, 2010 against Chivas USA. He was traded by San Jose on Sept. 5, 2013 to the Portland Timbers. He appeared in one match with the Timbers, playing one minute of the match against Toronto on Sept. 7, 2013.[3] During that minute the Timbers scored, giving Ring the highest team-goals-per-minute (1 goal/min) of any Timbers player ever.[4]

In January 2014, Ring returned to his Indiana roots by signing a two-year contract with Indy Eleven in the North American Soccer League (NASL).

Ring extended his contract with Indy Eleven on 27 January 2017.[5]

College and Amateur[edit]

Ring attended Guilford High School and played four years of college soccer for the Indiana University Hoosiers. He was a Big Ten All-Freshman Team selection, was a first-team All-Big Ten pick, a first-team NSCAA/adidas Great Lakes All-Region and second-team All-America selection, a Big Ten All-Tournament Team selection, and a semifinalist for the MAC Hermann Trophy as a junior in 2007, and was a third-team NSCAA All-American, an NSCAA Scholar All-American, and a member of the Academic All-Big Ten and NSCAA All-Great Lakes Region first-team as a senior while being named a MAC Hermann Trophy semifinalist for the second consecutive season.

During his college years Ring also played for Chicago Fire Premier in the USL Premier Development League and Princeton 56ers in the National Premier Soccer League.
