Ramirez heading to California for football

“It just came down to family,” he said. “I would rather play out there with a lot of family close to me than be at Brevard with really no one around.”

Ramirez was the defensive most valuable player in Havelock’s 21-13 victory over Concord in last season’s state championship game, recording 19 tackles and recovering a fumble.

Azusa Pacific is a Christian College and currently a part of the National Christian College Athletic Association. However, the school is in the second year of a three-year path to become a NCAA Division II school.

The Cougars were 10-2 last season after going 4-7 in 2012.

“I’m just first thankful to God for this opportunity that not every kid in my situation gets,” Ramirez said. “I am going to go there and work hard in the classroom, weightroom and on the field to earn that scholarship.”
