MIDDLETON -

Middleton's' Makonnen Ramsey always had the goal of playing Division One football - he just didn't know it would be at Harvard.

Ramsey will play for the Crimson this fall and says his success is tied to one word - "discipline".  "If you want to succeed in the classroom or on the field," he says, "you have to have discipline."

His father and uncle played football at Indiana. His grandfather at Bowling Green, and a brother and a cousin are currently playing college football.

Now, Makonnen wants to keep the family tradition going -- and do more.

"I know I've been given a tremendous opportunity and I'm going to make the best of it, using football as a platform to accomplish a more important goal - helping others."
