“The school, the team, and the coach they made me feel very welcome; it felt like home,” Ramos said. “It felt like San Benito over there in San Antonio.”
Ramos credits much of her success to her parents and high school coaches.
“First I like to thank my parents—my mom, my dad—but then Coach Ray Garza, Coach Jessica, Coach Alejandra Martinez, Coach Julia Campos, Coach Johnny Rojas, and Coach Lira,” she said.
While on the Lady ’Hounds, Ramos has learned much from Head Coach Denise Lira about leadership.
