Ramey-Doe, O-line deliver for BC High

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. – On the strength of Bartley Regan's right arm, BC High earned its berth in the Eastern Mass. Division 1 Super Bowl at Gillette Stadium.

But the passing game was option No. 2 in Saturday's final, thanks largely to an offensive line that fueled a first-rate running game against no-quit underdog Needham.

Deontae Ramey-Doe ran for 200 yards on 24 carries in BC High's 21-7 title-clinching win. But, just as quickly as Ramey-Doe hit the holes, he lauded the unheralded stars up front for ripping open those running lanes.

“They got real nasty,” said the 6-foot 1-inch, 180-pound senior, whose three touchdown runs included a highlight-reel 91-yard breakaway to the end zone, snapping a 7-all tie in the second quarter.

Who were the guys who enabled Ramey-Doe to gash the Rockets?

Left to right, across the line: Left tackle Justin Roberts, left guard Mike Prendeville, center Jake Durkin, right guard Jack McDonald and right tackle Bill Breen. Ends Jameson McShea, a Temple recruit, and Mark McGuire added to BC High's toughness in the trenches.

Make no mistake. Running the football requires attitude. BC High (10-3) certainly had it.

The Eagles averaged a whopping 7.7 yards per carry. Ramey-Doe, Luke Catarius (10 carries for 87 yards), James Moynahan and Regan combined for 39 rushes.

BC High's quartet tallied 300 of the offense's 360 total yards.

“Our game plan coming in was to mix it up (with the run and pass),” said BC High head coach Jon Bartlett, whose team led at halftime, 14-7. “We felt in the second half, we could establish the run more, so that's what we went to.”

Helping the head coach make that decision was the fact BC High lacked rhythm in the passing game.

So, Bartlett sent this message as the Eagles started the second half: Keep pounding the ball on the ground.

Those are words every offensive lineman loves to hear.

“It's the best feeling, just knowing that your running back can hit that hole and has open field in front of him,” said McDonald, a towering 6-foot-4, 270-pound junior. “There's nothing better than that.”

Case in point: Ramey-Doe's dagger 91-yard run.

Backed up at their 9-yard line after Andrew Murowchick's punt temporarily altered field position, the Eagles ran a shotgun draw. Ramey-Doe cut to McDonald's side of the line, where a gaping hole opened.

BC High's burner accelerated through it and raced down the right sideline. Ronnie Rosser nearly made a shoestring tackle 4 yards from the end zone. But Ramey-Doe fell forward across the goal line.

The offensive line continued to help kill clock in the third quarter. The Eagles orchestrated a 13-play drive over a span of six minutes, 40 seconds.

“We were all disappointed last year, not going to the playoffs,” said Breen, a 6-foot-2, 215-pound junior. “I know our whole team spent a lot of time in the weight room.”

It paid off.

Needham (9-4) routinely shifted along the defensive line. Yet, when the ball was snapped, the Eagles were routinely in position to provide a massive push.

“It's all attitude,” Breen said. “You have to want it.”

Recap: BC High 34, Chelmsford 13

LOWELL, Mass. -- They say it is always tough to beat a team twice in a season. On Tuesday night, BC High accomplished that feat defeating Chelmsford for the second time this season, 34-13, in the Eastern Massachusetts Division 1 semifinal at Lowell’s Cawley Stadium.

Chelmsford began the game with a drive that saw them move the ball all the way down to the BC High 23-yard line. BC High linebacker James Moynahan then made the play of the first quarter as he picked off Chelmsford quarterback Colby Emanouil at the 18-yard line. The interception set up a Bartley Regan 14-yard out to Gordon McLeod followed by a 68-yard touchdown burst from senior Deontae Ramey-Doe.

Ryan Kilian for ESPN.comTemple-bound Jameson McShea and the BC High defense kept Chelmsford's offensive stars in check.
“It was a toss to the outside,” Ramey-Doe said. “ I saw that the defense was heading to the outside so I had to cut it back and I only had one tackle to break until it was just wide open.”

Chelmsford would answer back on the second play of the second quarter as Emanouil got wide and took it around the left side for a 6-yard touchdown run.

After a Regan strike to Lincoln Collins made it 14-7 BC High in the second quarter senior defensive back Yosa Nosamiefan stepped in front of an Emanouil pass and took it 47 yards to the end zone to extend the Eagles' lead to 21-7 heading into the half.

BC High kept Emanouil and running back Eddie Sheridan in check for most of the night as the two Lions’ offensive stars struggled to break their typical “big plays”.

“They [Chelmsford] were tough, but we worked real hard in practice over the past few days and knew that their running game was going to be a challenge,” BC High junior linebacker Luke Catarius said.

Chelmsford also proved stout against the run on the evening which gave Regan more opportunities to throw the ball. The BC High senior signal caller found his favorite target McLeod to open the second half on a 12-yard corner end zone strike to extend the lead to 27-7 with 8:05 remaining in the third.

“Each game we have a different scheme,” BC High head coach Jon Bartlett said. “We wanted to throw the ball a little more tonight. They had great pressure and our guys did a good job of picking them up.”

Sheridan finally found the end zone in the third quarter as the senior scored his 25th rushing touchdown of the season on a 4-yard burst through the middle of the line. The touchdown cut the lead to 27-13 and gave the Lions momentum heading into the fourth quarter.

“I thought our defense responded well,” said Bartlett. “We stress all the time that if big plays happen you just have to forget about it and get to the next play.”

BC High stepped up their effort after Sheridan’s score and used the clock to their advantage as Moynahan capped off the game in the final quarter with an 18-yard touchdown run to seal the win and send BC High to the Division 1 Super Bowl.

“It feels great,” said Ramey-Doe of getting to Gillette and the Super Bowl. “A lot of us have been here (BC High) for four or even five years now, from our middle school class. It is a real great experience and we are all happy.”

Trusting the O-Line
Ramey-Doe also credited his offensive line for their strong play on the evening. Along with Temple-bound tight end Jameson McShea the Eagles scored 34 points on one of the state’s stingiest defenses.

“Our offensive line has been getting better and better each week,” Ramey-Doe said. “I trust them that if I just work hard and hit the holes they will be there.”

Ramey-Doe has seen his carries and role dramatically increase as he became BC High’s primary ball carrier with the season ending ankle injury to star senior tailback Preston Cooper against Everett during the regular season.

Chelmsford recap
Chelmsford concludes their season with a 10-2 record and graduates a stellar senior class led by Boston College-bound linebacker Tim Joy, linebacker Corey Everleigh, defensive end Brett Harrington, along with Emanouil and Sheridan.

“I am real proud of our kids,” Chelmsford head coach Bruce Rich said. “These guys are outstanding. They have great size and great talent over there.”
