Although the Oklahoma Flying Aces indoor football team did not see the success they were hoping for in their inaugural season, the Champions Indoor Football Board of Directors deemed that the new team on the block deserved some recognition. In an announcement made over the weekend, the Flying Aces received two postseason awards, with Quarterback Rayjohn Ramsey highlighting the list after being named the leagues Rookie of the Year. The additional award granted to the Aces was given to principal owner Craig Tirey, who shared the Executive of the Year award with Amarillo Venom owner Stephanie Tucker.
Despite the teams 2-10 overall record in its first year of play in the CIF, Ramsey was able to quickly adjust to the indoor game amassing more than 1,300 yards through the air & 23 touchdowns while also completing more than 54 percent of his passes. Ramsey, an East Central University graduate, started the final six games of the season for the Flying Aces, and will be an integral part of the offense as the Aces go into their first offseason.
