Ramsey has had a few athletes reach the professional ranks in sports, a phenomenon that may gain steam with the emergence of Don Bosco’s football program as a national powerhouse. One of the first to recently make an impact in the National Football League is Green Bay running back and former Don Bosco player Ryan Grant.
Grant was born in 1982 in Suffern, New York. He attended Don Bosco, left briefly tto attend Clarkstown South High School in West Nyack, but returned to Don Bosco where he had a senior season that included 26 touchdowns and nearly 2,000 rushing yards as the Don Bosco team would make it into but lose the state championship game to Holy Cross High School (Burlington County).
Originally signed by the NY Giants as an un-drafted free agent in 2005 after playing his college ball at the University of Notre Dame, Grant has had most of his success with the Green Bay Packers the last three seasons rushing for 3,412 yards.
