Vicente "Cheetah" Ramirez, Fort Hancock
One of the greatest high school football dynasties in the state of Texas is the Fort Hancock Mustangs. The Mustangs won a state record 70 straight games, four state titles and one state runner-up in five seasons. No player from that dynasty was more dynamic and legendary than Vicente Ramirez. He was quick, fast, shifty and seemed uncatchable. All of these adjectives help describe the characteristics of a Cheetah so it makes perfect sense why he was given the nickname Vicente “Cheetah” Ramirez.
Vicente “Cheetah” Ramirez was a major player and contributor during this amazing run of the Fort Hancock Mustangs. He was a dual threat out of the backfield with speed, agility and a strong arm. He was known for his ability to break away with his speed and make large gains with his legs.
In 1989, Cheetah saw limited playing time as a freshman on the state championship team, but did make an impact on special teams in the return game. In 1990 as a sophomore, Cheetah was a two-way starter and was selected to the All State team as a running back. His sophomore year stats were 1,973 yards rushing with 30 Touchdowns. He had 34 catches for 825 yards and 15 Touchdowns. He returned 1 punt for a touchdown, 1 Kickoff for a touchdown and intercepted 2 passes which he returned for touchdowns. In 1991 as a junior, Cheetah continued to build on his success by rushing for 2,744 yards and scoring 46 touchdowns. He completed 43 passes for 699 yards and 14 touchdowns. He returned 4 punts for touchdowns, 3 kickoffs for touchdowns and had 1 interception for a touchdown. He was selected to the All State Team as a Spread Back. In 1992 as a senior, Cheetah put up outstanding numbers. He rushed for 2,878 yards scoring 38 touchdowns. He threw for 1,075 yards and 37 touchdowns. On the defensive side of the ball he had 7 interceptions. Cheetah was again selected to the All State team as a Spread Back. He was selected to play for the West in the 1993 TSMCA All-Star football game. Throughout his high school career, Cheetah rushed for over 7,700 yards; Scored over 116 rushing Touchdowns; Scored over 150 total touchdowns; passed for over 1,700 yards and threw at least 51 touchdowns. He amassed over 10,300 total yards of offense. All in only three seasons as a starter. In 2009, he was honored to be named to the UIL All-Century Six-Man Team as 2nd team Offensive Back.
Fort Hancock’s success in his three years as a two-way starter and electrifying special teams’ player helped shine a spotlight on the Fort Hancock Mustangs, their community and the game of 6-man football that was not only statewide, but at times nationwide. Cheetah represented himself with dignity on the field as a fierce competitor, and an uplifting teammate. All these qualities earned him the love and respect of his teammates, coaches, and community around him as well as the admiration and respect of his opponents.
Quote from former teammate Brent Henderson:
“Cheetah was one of the main guys that helped bring the spot light to six-man football period. He was a loving and caring for his teammates during football as a player AND for 25 years after as a citizen as he supported not only the kids, players, school and community of Fort Hancock, but those in Sierra Blanca and any other six-man community that was around. He loved the sport.”
Unfortunately, this is a posthumous honor as Cheetah passed away in April of 2018. While he may be gone, Cheetah, with his big smile and kind nature, will forever be remembered as a loving son, husband, father, brother, Fort Hancock native and Texas high school football great and now Texas Six-man Coaches Association Hall of Famer.
