Ryan McHugh in Division One action for Donegal against Galway in February

With Gaelic games in lockdown until at least July 20 due to the deadly coronavirus, Sunday Life Sport has introduced a series with Armagh's All-Ireland winner and Crossmaglen legend Oisin McConville, chatting with 11 of the biggest names in the sport.

Today it's Ryan McHugh, an instantly recognisable figure within the GAA. He burst onto the scene in 2013 on the back of a stellar under-age career.

When Ryan became part of the Donegal squad he was coming in to try and grab his place with the reigning All-Ireland champions. Not only that, but he came into the game of Gaelic football at a time when the big men were dominating and unless you were 6ft-plus and at least 13 stone there didn't seem to be a place in the game for you.
