Cowboys punish Buena Vista 54-8

Lineman Jamie Ramirez, number 77, five-feet-eleven, 280
bone-crunching, here-comes-the-mountain pounds, exploded for a
two-yard touchdown in the undefeated Grandfalls-Royalty Cowboys
54-8 punishing of Buena Vista at Cowboy Stadium on Friday, Oct.

Dating to last year, Grandfalls has now won 18 straight regular
seasons games, eight in District 8-1A Six Man. With Balmorhea's
spanking last week of Sanderson, Grandfalls is in the drivers seat
with a champion's chance to take their second consecutive district
crown. If they beat Sanderson on Friday, Halloween, in Sanderson,
Grandfalls is a mathematical cinch for the playoffs. They'll close
out with Marathon at home on Nov. 7.

After Big Jamie scored in the third period against Buena Vista to
top off a devastating 42-point Grandfalls point barrage that began
in the second quarter, the big lineman just beamed. It was the
first touchdown Jamie Ramirez had scored in his life.

He hit the TD from the backfield where he had been moved for the
shot at the goal, a shot which, as it turned out, was as easy for
him as it has been all season for the high-octane Cowboy offense.
"We plan to put Jamie in for certain situations like this," says
Cowboy Coach Dewaine Lee, "as we prepare for the play-offs. We'll
do it in five yard situations. Jamie's pretty quick for five
yards. He runs North and South and he runs as big as he is."

Ramirez wasn't the only Grandfalls lineman who tallied in the
Buena Vista wipeout. Eric Garcia, five-feet-eight inches and 180
pounds, caught a touchdown pass from Lightning Roy Vasquez. It was
Garcia's fifth pass reception for a score this season, recalls Lee.
Of course the linemen aren't the only players who scored in the
Grandfalls victory over Buena Vista.

Roy Vasquez got three. Alfonso Marquez got one. Jimmy Ramirez
tallied once.

It was a usual Grandfalls-Royalty Cowboy performance in the 1997
Six Man Football Season.
