Ryan Crosby is one of a dozen people who carved more than 100 blocks of ice on the last day of 2017 for First Night State College.
He is a student at Penn State Altoona. Crosby said he has loved ice carving since he was young. He was encouraged to begin carving by his father, who owns DiMartino Ice.
Crosby said he enjoys the comaradiery of the ice carving crew. His goal is to become an engineer, but he said he'll always be an ice carver, too
