Ronnie had a complete grasp of what the Phoebus-Hampton rivalry is all about. During the 2001 season, Ronnie’s senior year, he quarterbacked the Phantoms to two victories over the Crabbers. Ronnie threw for over 1700 yards and 17 touchdowns that year, and his leadership served as the catalyst for the Phantoms first AAA State Football Championship. He continued his education and his football career at Coffeyville Community College and was in the process of transferring to Kent State when his life was tragically cut short in an auto accident in June of 2004. Not only did Ronnie leave an indelible mark on Phantom football, but also on the hearts of all who were privileged to know him. Ronnie’s parents, Kim and Ronald, and his daughter Anayiah accepted the Hall of Fame Award on his behalf.
