The Star Linebacker For The Doss Dragons
The Doss High School football team finished up their 2015 football season on last Friday with a win against Fairdale. The Dragons will end the regular season with a record of 4 wins and 6 losses, however they went 4-1 in their KHSAA 4A Football District four. One key component of the Dragons success this season has been the outstanding play of senior linebacker Ramone Kelly.
Ramone Kelly ,who stands at 6 foot and weighs 205 lbs, possesses a great football IQ. If you see Kelly’s highlights his quickness to the football is what stands out about him. Kelly currently has 77 tackles, 10 sacks, seven fumble recoveries and two forced fumbles on the season. ” I plan to be twice as good during the playoffs,” Kelly said when discussing those stats. Kelly is also a smart student off the football field with a 2.8 cumulative GPA and he is a very humble kid. I caught up with Kelly earlier this week to ask him a few questions about his future and current success as a football player at Doss High School.
Analyzed Sports: What will be your favorite memory as a football player at Doss High School?
Kelly: I have enjoyed just being a part of this team in general. I am definitely going to miss playing with my teammates and I have just taken in each moment here at Doss.
Analyzed Sports: What is your key to the quickness you have to get to the football?
Kelly: I generally try to anticipate the play before it happens, it is something that I have practiced over and over during the summer.
Analyzed Sports: What are some skills that you need to work on in order to take your game to the next level?
Kelly: I definitely need to work on my coverage skills more and filling up the gaps in the defense quicker.
Analyzed Sports: Who is your favorite football player?
Kelly : I don’t really have a favorite NFL player, but I used to watch Ladainian Tomlinson a lot when he played for the San Diego Chargers.
Kelly and the rest of the Doss High School football team are preparing for the playoffs. Ramone Kelly made it very clear to me that he is “ready for the moment”. He has a chance to be a very great addition to someone’s college football team in the future.
