Ker­man’s Joseph Ramirez got good news this week, in­formed he was mov­ing up to var­sity.

And the fresh­man im­me­di­ately de­liv­ered, snag­ging a late-game in­ter­cep­tion that sealed Ker­man’s 16-8 vic­tory over Roo­sevelt at Sun­ny­side Sta­dium.

“We were strug­gling a lit­tle bit lately, espe­cially in the sec­ondary,” said coach Tim Hurt, whose Lions moved to 2-4. “He’s been one kid that’s been a bright spot on the JVs.

“I don’t re­ally care about age. If you’re a player, you’re a player. We brought him up and he’s been one hell of a player for us all week.”

Ramirez said he read the quar­ter­back from the be­gin­ning of the crit­i­cal play.

“Just played my deep cov­er­age and I caught it and I froze,” he said. “I didn’t know what was hap­pen­ing and I picked it and I just ran.”
