The Rampart boys' basketball team is one of the best in Southern Colorado. Their inspiration lies with a teammate who passed away unexpectedly. That teammate is this week's "Loaf ‘N Jug High School Athlete of the Week."
Nick Reff played soccer and basketball at Rampart. This past September he suffered a seizure and died in his sleep. His basketball teammates have dedicated the season to Nick who is still introduced prior to each game. Nick remains very much a part of the team.
In the classroom Nick was an International Baccalaureate student and one of the most popular people in his class.
