TOMMY ELLIS 

Tommy is a senior and has played all four years at Ridge. Despite not having a ton (or really any) team success in terms of winning he has always maintained a positive approach and been a great leader within the program.

His current stats are as follows…

93 tackles (13.3 per game) – leads all of 6A football
11 tackles for loss, 2 Interceptions, 3 Pass Deflections, 5 forced fumbles, 2 blocked punts, 1 blocked point after touchdown
There is no question he is having an incredible year on the field. Additionally he maintains a 4.62 gpa in the classroom and is in the top 2% of his class. He is truly a role model student-athlete that all of us as coaches would love to have on our teams. – Coach Doug Madoski
