Cole may or may not be wearing this number on opening day as he has yet to be assigned one, but day 88 needed a player to wear and Cole IS a player. So he gets to be the guy today!
#88, Cole Ramseyer, Freshman, Tight End
Height: 6’ 4”

How’d he get to The BlueTM?

Cole came to the Broncos from state football powerhouse, Cour d’Alene High School. He was ranked by Scout.com as the 59th best tight end prospect in the country in 2017. He had offers from half the Big Sky Conference...and Air Force.
“Stone Cole’d Sleyer”
“The Walking Dead’s” Michael Cudlitz. Granted, Cudlitz hit some branches falling out of the ugly tree and that’s not a reflection on Cole. This is a base comparison of hints of facial similarity so, for the record, I’m not calling the dude ugly. Well...Cudlitz, yes. Cole, no. That said, one could be compared to worse things than the zombie wrecking machine that is Abraham.
The Vikings advanced all the way to the state championship game where they fell to the Highland Rams of Pocatello. Cole had 6 catches for 67 yards in the loss. Otherwise, his season amounted to 43 catches for 602 yards and 5 touchdowns.
While the Broncos did graduate an awful lot of production last year in Dhaenens and Roh, they still have some familiar and capable faces coming back that will likely stay above Cole on the depth chart for at least this year. Namely, Chase Blakley, John Bates, and Matt Pistone. In the meantime, he’ll have time to acclimate to a college program, get bigger in the weight room under the punishing tutelage of Coach Pitman, and learn from those that have been playing the position in Coach Hill’s system longer.
Is he on Twitter?
He is, but don’t get too excited. He’s not exactly the most prolific tweeter of tweets.

Completely made up fact
Cole built quite the hype train in the week leading up to the state title game last year and was crowned with the nom de guerre of “Cole, Ram Slayer”. Unfortunately for Cole, the result of that game sort of took the punch out of the name. However, weeks later, on a family trip to the southern (and eastern) part of the state, Cole saved a Highland Ram from drowning and was given a new name: “Cole, Ram Saver”. This not only allowed him to move on from the deep personal anguish he had wallowed in, but also helped heal the larger divide between North and South. It was very moving and many stirring and heartfelt bumper stickers and Facebook posts were produced to commemorate the incident.
