"He's just a great kid," said Chaminade-Julienne head coach Jim Place. "He has very, very high goals for himself."
"He's 198 pounds, bench presses 320 pounds, 3.2 student; I think he has everything the major colleges are looking for," said Coach Place. "Give him that ball; he knows what to do with it. He is his own back."
"Ever since I was little, I have always wanted to go to Ohio State. That has been my #1. I also like Michigan though – even though they are rivals. Ohio State is my #1, but I still like Michigan," Ringer told the Insiders network.
Expect Ringer to make an early decision regarding his future; "I would like to commit some time before the season, but if that does not happen," said Ringer. "I don't want it to be a long process. I want to commit as soon as possible."
And when he hits college?
"My goal is to start my freshman year. I feel I will be good enough to start my freshman year, but it is not like I am demanding that. If they say they will give me an opportunity. I want to work for it. I don't want to just have it there on a silver plate."
Ringer's stats are amazing. The state's runner-up for Mr. Football last season was outstanding throughout.
"My junior year, I had 2,356 rushing yards and a 10.8 yards per carry and 30 touchdowns. In 2002, I had 2,028 rushing yards on 198 carries. I averaged 10.6 yards per carry and 30 touchdowns."
"I have been working on my speed because I want to beat that 4.26. My balance, my acceleration, getting my strength up in my legs – I need a lot in my legs because that is what running backs need – leg power, my upper body. I have been working on my hands because I know in college some running backs get plays out of the backfield."
Ringer feels blocking is his greatest weakness;
"I am working on how to get inside because a lot of running backs really don't block that good. I want college coaches to see that I am not selfish. I am not looking out for just me, I want to look out for my quarterback and everybody else too. I have been working on when I am blocking making sure I don't hold."
