Ramos, a junior outside linebacker from Milford, Conn., led Springfield College with a team-high nine tackles, including five solos, and three-for-loss (for six yards). But his biggest play came very late when the game was still in doubt.
Springfield had just taken a lead, 20-15 with 4:08 remaining when junior halfback Mark Safer (St. Johns, Fla.) ran around left end for a six-yard TD. But there was still time remaining for Union to mount one more drive.
Then with 2:43 left, Ramos picked off a pass on the left sideline, ultimately reversed his field, and proceded to run it all the way back to the right corner of the end zone to seal the deal. The TD gave SC its final 26-15 margin.
This was the second time Ramos has been named an Empire 8 Defensive Player of the Week this year. It was also the ninth time overall that a Springfield College player has been named an Empire 8 Player of the Week. SC had a defensive player named six times, and a special teams player named three times.
