He is a coach on the rise. Look for some other top 20 school with a fat wallet try to take him away from Northwestern after this season.Now that we're all Northwestern fans for this season, here's an interesting stat I came across yesterday.
Well— to be fair, Fitzgerald totally overlooked Ramsey initially— only to realize his mistake, when Ramsey entered the grad transfer system... Fitzgerald could probably have had him the first time around (for 4-5 years) —instead, he chose to recruit guys like Wyoming’s QB, Andrew Marty— that decision is a TOTAL head scratcher...Fitzgerald has recruited Cincinnati better than Tuberville did. A few LaSalle studs and Peyton.
My understanding is that he could—assuming he wants to and Northwestern wants him to return as well. I’m not certain though if the NCAA will increase scholarship limits though.A question regarding Peyton. The NCAA announced earlier this fall that all fall sport athletes will “receive both an additional year of eligibility and an additional year in which to complete it.”
Would Peyton be eligible to return to play another year at Northwestern next year if he decided he wanted to. I understand there may be factors that impact that decision.
Cool. If Scholarship limit not increased, he could just Pay for a Semester and still be eligible to play if he wanted?My understanding is that he could—assuming he wants to and Northwestern wants him to return as well. I’m not certain though if the NCAA will increase scholarship limits though.
However five seasons of college football takes a toll on a player and some are just ready to move on to the next chapter of their life.
Sounds like he is just like his father. I feel like all the things that are being said about Peyton in that article could just as easily be said about his dad. We have been blessed to have Doug Ramsey as our football coach for all these years. Could Peyton follow in his dad’s footsteps someday? How great would that be!Great article about Peyton. He represents himself, his family and the Elder community well.
George Leonard roots for Notre Dame, as did his father, as do many residents of the state of Indiana. Yet, his two teenaged sons are not interested in Fighting Irish gear. They’ve been clamoring for Peyton Ramsey Northwestern jerseys all season long.
Leonard is a social studies teacher at Bloomington North High School, where Ramsey did his student-teaching semester in the spring of 2020, necessary for him to earn his secondary degree in education from Indiana University.
Even after he graduated and transferred to Northwestern this offseason, Ramsey stayed in continual contact with Leonard and his sons. The younger son was treated to a FaceTime with Ramsey as a surprise birthday gift, while the older got a follow on Instagram and weekly messages from NU’s new quarterback, who asked for updates on his first season of high school football.
Such compassion and devotion might seem surprising on surface, but according to Leonard, the more you get to know Northwestern’s starting quarterback, the less surprising his kind acts become.
“Peyton is a better man than he is a football player, and he is one heck of a football player,” said Leonard.

The purple helmet with white facemask is a sharp look. I agree with you, if there's just numbers on the helmet with a stripe then let's get some purple lids. The Elder players get those shells anyways, couldn't those come in purple?As I am watching this game, I keep asking myself, why does Elder not have purple helmets? I am guessing cost. If they just have numbers on the helmet, I personally believe they should be purple. When we had the panther head helmet, we needed the white helmet to have the purple panther. Now that it is just numbers, I think it should be purple with white numbers.
