As an senior with experience for Ramapo, Tyler Ward likes to run the show whether is on the court or the gridiron.

Wayne Hills, led by center Pete Daibes' nine points and five by Mike Driesse, built a 17-10 lea din the first quarter but was scoreless for the ensuing 12:52. Ramapo's relentless defense had a lot to do with that but Wayne Hills couldn't buy a 2-pointer. Click here to read more.
