07/09/2012 - No one would've blamed Devon Ramsay for calling it a career. The North Carolina fullback lost part of a season to a shoulder injury, most of another to a later-overturned NCAA charge and nearly all of a third with a knee injury. Yet Ramsay is still here after the NCAA granted him a sixth year of eligibility, eager for one more shot with the Tar Heels even though he's unsure how he'll fit into a new coach's offense. ''I always think about how you've got to persevere through it,'' Ramsay said. ''I think I have a pretty happy disposition. There's been a lot of hard things I've been through in my life, but I feel like I'm still smiling mostly a lot of the time.'' Ramsay is still recovering after tearing two ligaments and damaging the meniscus in his left knee in last year's opener. He had started running by spring, but a setback forced a second surgery in May to remove scar tissue. It's unclear if he'll be ready for camp or the Sept. 1 opener against Elon. Things won't get easier after his return, either. The offense Larry Fedora brought from Southern Mississippi doesn't use a fullback in its base package. ''He's been dealt a lot of adversity and I think that's going to determine who Devon Ramsay is - how he deals with it and what he does to overcome it,'' Fedora said. ''He's been working hard. He's done everything we've asked him to do and he's part of our program.'' Ramsay is staying positive, saying it's pointless to resent all those bad breaks in a luckless career. ''This is one of those instances where you only get to live once,'' said his mother, Sharon Lee. ''If you have the opportunity to do something you love, that's a blessing. He has the opportunity and obviously he loves it enough to put the effort in it to do this.'' - AP Sports

01/07/2012 - The NCAA has granted North Carolina fullback Devon Ramsay a hardship waiver, giving him an extra year of eligibility in 2012. Team officials announced the NCAA's decision Saturday. Ramsay tore several ligaments in his left knee in the 2011 season opener against James Madison. He had surgery in mid-September and missed the rest of the season. He missed the 2007 season with a shoulder injury and played in only four games in 2010 before being ruled permanently ineligible for academic misconduct during its NCAA investigation of the football program. He appealed, and the NCAA later reversed its decision and restored his eligibility, saying Ramsay hadn't committed a violation. - AP Sports

09/13/2011 - North Carolina fullback Devon Ramsay has had surgery on his left knee. The school said Ramsay underwent the operation on Tuesday at UNC Hospitals to reconstruct the anterior cruciate ligament and repair the medial collateral ligament and meniscus. Ramsay has been ruled out for the rest of this season, and North Carolina is pursuing a sixth year of eligibility for him due to medical reasons. He was injured during a 4-yard run by teammate Ryan Houston in the third quarter of the opener against James Madison. Ramsay played in only four games last year before being ruled permanently ineligible for academic misconduct during its NCAA investigation of the football program. He appealed, and the NCAA later reversed its decision and restored his eligibility, saying Ramsay hadn't committed a violation. - AP Sports

09/08/2011 - Senior FB Devon Ramsey will miss the rest of the season after being scheduled for knee surgery. He had an 18-yard catch and started against James Madison. North Carolina will pursue a sixth year of eligibility for Ramsey, who missed the 2007 season because of a shoulder injury. - The Sports Xchange

09/06/2011 - Yet again, North Carolina fullback Devon Ramsay is going to have to wait for the NCAA to decide whether he can play college football. Ramsay, a redshirt senior, tore the ACL and MCL in his left knee during the third quarter of Saturday's victory over James Madison, and is out for the season. The school announced it will pursue a sixth year of eligibility for Ramsay by petitioning the NCAA for a rare medical hardship waiver, which is sometimes granted when a player misses two seasons for medical reasons. Ramsay redshirted in 2007 with a shoulder injury. Last season, after playing in four games, he was declared permanently ineligible by the NCAA as part of the investigation into academic misconduct. Three months later, an appeal to the NCAA engineered by former N.C. Supreme Court justice Robert Orr restored Ramsay's eligibility. "The kid can't catch a break," quarterback Bryn Renner said. "I feel for him. I really didn't know the severity of the injury because we don't get the injury report. It's killing me right now." Ramsay, who caught an 18-yard pass before he was injured, will be replaced in the starting lineup by Curtis Byrd, a senior from Durham Riverside who started six games in 2010. He is the only fullback now listed on the Tar Heels' depth chart. - Robbi Pickeral, The Charlotte Observer

09/05/2011 - UNC senior fullback Devon Ramsay tore the ACL and MCL in his left knee in Saturday's 42-10 victory over James Madison, the school announced. Ramsay, who sat out the final nine games of last season as part of the NCAA investigation, started against JMU and had an 18-yard reception. Curtis Byrd, a senior from Durham Riverside who started six games last season, is the only fullback listed on North Carolina's depth chart. "We use a number of different personnel groups and formations that allow us to look like we've got two backs in the backfield," North Carolina head coach Everett Withers said. "I think we'll be fine. I feel like Curtis will be good for us in that role. We feel like we can get what we need to get done offensively and still do the things that we need to do with the personnel groups that we have." UNC will pursue a sixth year of eligibility with the NCAA for Ramsay, who redshirted in 2007 with a shoulder injury and missed the final nine games of last season after being declared permanently ineligible by the NCAA as part of the investigation into academic misconduct at North Carolina. - The News & Observer
