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
