    Indians finish season undefeated!
    By Jerri Lynn Merritt
    [​IMG] The Indians celebrate after winning the game.Submitted photo/Adam Herrera
    Immokalee High School senior quarterback Ramces Rouzard was ecstatic after the homecoming game Friday night. ?We?re 10-0, baby,? he shouted, ?No one can take that away from us! The Indians shut out a formidable Plantation American Heritage team 43-0. Ramces threw for 1,232 yards in his first year as Senior Quarterback. ?This year meant a lot to me because it is my first year at quarterback and Coach Weber chose me to be a leader and that was real hard that first week. We made a commitment and we set a goal and we accomplished it. Life isn?t fair but we proved that no matter what happens, tradition and pride overcomes all of that.?

    That?s right the Indians are a perfect 10! They are the best team that Immokalee High has ever had, breaking the school?s record for shutouts, points scored and teams held scoreless with the awesome Immokalee defense only allowing 36 points all season. Immokalee finished its 2006 season Friday night, outscoring their opponents 399 to 36 .The Indians were up to a 37-0 half-time lead over American Heritage before the homecoming crowning of wide receiver Aaron Henry.

    Twenty-one points were scored in the first quarter alone. Brian Rolle was the first to put the Indians on the scoreboard with a 37-yard touchdown run on Immokalee?s first play from scrimmage. Markease Williams?s kick went sailing through the uprights at Gary Bates Stadium. Carl Elie was next on the board with a 27-yard run and again Williams?s kick was good.

    Carl Elie scored once more on a 1-yard run and Williams kicked it through again. They scored 16 more points in the second quarter first with Brandon Rolle on a 1-yard run. Then, again Carl Elie and another 1-yard run and a Williams kick. Then Markease Williams kicked a 35 -yard field goal to bring the score to 37-0 at the half. Carl Elie finished with 71 yards and three touchdowns.

    Brian Rolle scored the final touchdown for the Indians with a beautifully executed 30-yard run, which brought the final score to 43-0. After the game Brian said, ?It was wild! I?m a senior and this is my last game. It?s hard to take it all in. This is for Gilbert Zarate and I pray every night and this is for him. He would have enjoyed this so much. As for me and my future wherever I go will be because of these guys.? Brain had 140 yards on 10 carries for two touchdowns this game.

    As the Immokalee fans went crazy, the players doused their coaches with Gatorade, the team shook hands with their opponents before Captain Brian Rolle took center field and with a beaming smile on his face started the chant ?10 and 0, 10 and 0.? The entire Indian team joined in, ?10 and 0, 10 and 0.? They bounced up and down shouting holding their helmets high and declaring themselves number one for all to see and revel in their victory.

    #53 Fabio Ramirez reflected on this season, ?It meant a lot to all of us like winning the Super Bowl and World Series. Everything might not be big in life but you make them as big as you want them to be.?

    As is customary at the end of all Immokalee Indians games, an emotion filled Coach John Weber gathered his team around him and spoke from the heart. ?Every goal we set for ourselves, we met,? he said. ?We went 10-0 with six shutouts. We set the school record for shutouts. We set the school record for fewest points allowed. Nobody on God?s green earth could?ve done what you?ve done under the circumstances. Nobody. We are so proud of what you have accomplished this season. We love all of you guys.?

    The year?s team is only the second team in Immokalee High School?s 55-year history to have a perfect regular season. ?I rank this year?s team right up there with the best and I would play anybody in our class, any place! This was their State Championship and they did what they had to do. I want to tell the Immokalee community how much their support has meant to our team. We appreciate all of their backing they have given us this year and they have a group of young men whom they can be very proud of,? said Coach Weber.

    Brian says Iowa was great but not as great as Wisconsin. He has Wisconsin, tOSU, and Florida as his favorites and will be in Columbus this weekend. He also says he may visit LSU depending on what he sees in Columbus.

    Buckeyes roll out red carpet for Rolle

    By Jason A. Dixon (Contact)
    Wednesday, November 15, 2006
    Immokalee?s Brian Rolle had trouble believing the intensity of the Ohio State-Michigan football rivalry.
    [​IMG]
    But the 5-foot-11, 220-pound Rolle, who is being recruited by the Buckeyes as a linebacker, will fly to Columbus for an official visit this weekend to get a first-hand experience.
    ?When I first heard it was that game I?m going to, I didn?t know it was as serious as it was,? he said during a telephone interview on Tuesday. ?I told my coach ?You know I?m going up to the Ohio State-Michigan game?? and he was like ?What??
    ?I thought it was something wrong with him. He was like ?That?s one of the best games of this decade.???
    And caught up in all the anticipated excitement is where Rolle will find himself, thinking about how badly he wants to be out on the field.
    It will be the third official visit for Rolle, who has already gone to the University of Iowa and the University of Wisconsin.
    He also made an unofficial visit to the University of Florida, a place where Rolle received something that will ultimately lead to his final decision.
    ?Florida is the only place where I felt really at home, even though it?s in Florida,? he said. ?When I first met the guys, it felt like I knew these guys my whole life. Depending on how this visit goes, I?ll be able to say ?I want to go to school there,? but I?m still not going to make my decision until a couple of weeks from now.?
    Rolle added that if he finds Ohio State to be the right fit for him, he will commit early.
    On Dec. 1, Rolle said he will likely make an official visit to LSU and then choose between West Virginia, Mississippi and Florida for his final visit.
    Rolle said he?s leaning toward taking an official visit to Florida so he can get a better feel for what type of program they have.
    Right now, though, he?s chomping at the bit for Saturday.
    ?It?s going to be Ohio State and Michigan,? Rolle said. ?The No. 1 and No. 2 teams in the country and I look forward to seeing those guys play their hearts out.?
    This past season, Rolle led the Indians to a 10-0 record while playing running back and linebacker.
    He rushed for 902 yards and 17 touchdowns and led the team with 125 tackles. Rolle has also drawn some interest from schools to play running back, LSU being one, but he said his preference is to stay at linebacker.
    Immokalee was banned from the playoffs by the Florida High School Athletic Association during the summer for the use of on over-aged kicker in a handful of games during the 2005 season.
    For the last three years, Rolle has played on varsity, helping the Indians win the school?s first ever state championship in 2004. Immokalee football coach John Weber said Rolle is one of the most highly recruited players he?s had in 30 years of coaching high school football.
    ?Not a lot of kids get a chance to go to Wisconsin, Ohio State and Florida,? Weber said, ?so that tells you what kind of player he is. He handles it just like he did on the field, with class. Everywhere he goes, they like the way he handles it.?

    Brian enjoyed his official visit to Ohio State, and he proclaims that the Buckeyes are his leader. He wants to make an official visit to Florida, and then decide in early December.

    Bernini I don't want to play fair I'm a thugs-are-us coach

    I've never had much hope for Wisconsin with this one. Not that Wisconsin never wins a race with Ohio State for an OOS recruits, Elijah Hodge, but he just seems infatuated with tOSU based on his comments and actions. That's where I'd expect him to go. Some guy that talks to him said he figured he'd go to Florida, but from what I hear they aren't that interested. He looks like a good one. Definitely a short linebacker, not a strong safety, IMO.

    dozerbuck You shut your mouth when you're talking to me

    The kid is a straight up FOOTBALL player. Get him on the field some how and he will perform.....but thats just my opinion.
  10. ol104

    ol104 RIP Neutron Man

    Very similar to Tyler Moeller in my opinion...would be a great "Football" player even if he doesn't pass the ole' Cooper "Look Test"

    RB07OSU #7 aka Vick the human joystick

    You beat me to it...Rolle reminds me heavily of Moeller only I think Rolle has a bit more athletic ability. I don't care how big they are as long as they are a baller.

    Rolle and Weber get awards
    By Jerri Lynn Merritt
    [​IMG] Coach John Weber was named District 16 All Star Coach of the Year. He had his 200th career win with the Indians final game on November 3.Immokalee Bulletin/Jerri Lynn Merritt
    Immokalee High School and the Immokalee community have so much to be proud of in the Immokalee Indians football program. After their final game which the Indians won a very convincingly, Immokalee High School senior linebacker and fullback number 36 Brian Rolle was named the Florida Athletic Coaches Association Most Valuable Player for District 16 and Player of the Year.

    Brian, who is being heavily recruited this year, has some of the biggest and best schools looking at him and wanting him for their program. He went to one of the biggest games in college football - the Ohio State-Michigan game where he visited the campus and athletic department of the Ohio State Buckeyes on his third official college visit. He has already made trips to the University of Iowa and the University of Wisconsin and he made an unofficial visit to the University of Florida. Brian will announce his decision after he visits all of the prospective universities that want him to come to their school. He just has to find the perfect match for him.

    This season, Brian led the Indians to a 10-0 record as a team captain, running back and linebacker. He rushed for 902 yards, had 17 touchdowns and led the team with 125 tackles. He has been on the Indians? varsity team for the past three years and was instrumental in helping the Indians win their first-ever state championship in 2004. Of this years? season Rolle said, ?We?re trying to show them that no matter what they do to us, we?re still going to be the Indians and have our pride.?

    Head Coach John Weber was named District 16 All Star Coach of the Year. He had his 200th career win with the Indians final game on November 3. ?To get this win was tremendously gratifying for this community, this school and this football team,? he said, ?We thank the Immokalee community for standing behind us the way they have.?

    The Immokalee Indians beat three playoff-bound teams: Naples, Lehigh and Palmetto Ridge. The combined score of those three games was 131-0. Coach Weber made a challenge early on that the Indians would gladly play whomever won the State Championship this year but no one will know for sure how far they could have gone. All that is known is that they have beat the teams that are on their way there. ?They?ve done more for less than any team I?ve coached,? said an emotional Coach Weber after their final win of the season. This is Immokalee?s beloved coaches 36th year of coaching prep football and his 11th season at Immokalee High School. ?It?s been an amazing run. One I certainly won?t forget,? he said.

    The district includes 27 high schools in Lee, Collier, Charlotte, Glades, Hendry and DeSoto counties. Also placed on the 2006 All-District 16 Team roster were senior defensive back Aaron Henry and junior defensive lineman Victor Ledezma on the first team. Both Rolle and Henry are both listed in Rivals.com?s Top 100 prospects in the state of Florida. Ledezma is one of two juniors who were chosen for the first team.

    Johnny Dor, Richard Alusma, Brandon Rolle, Wilfort Doly, Eric Contreras, David Lamour, Hendrickson Armand, Brandon McCray and Carl Elie all received Honorable Mention. The Immokalee Indians played this year for the pure love of the game, tradition and pride. They became a very tight knit family a ?Band of Brothers? whose bond will not soon be broken. They have tremendous athletes, a great chemistry and they are a totally unselfish group of young men.

    Coach Weber has said time and again that he is ?amazed? at the season this team has had. He has led with his devout group of assistant coaches a group of young men who have now become a legacy in Immokalee. They are the Indians and in the local stores you can readily get your very own Immokalee Indians T-shirt to show your Immokalee Pride. This group of young athletes did something that no other team has done before them and they did it with style, dignity and pride and have made their school, family and community very proud. These latest awards are just a little more icing on what was a perfect season for the Immokalee Indians.

    Brian Rolle had the best seat in the house for the Michigan-Ohio State game two weeks ago. He took his official visit to Columbus and nearly committed on the spot.

    "I liked everything about Ohio State from the atmosphere to the school. Ohio State is my favorite," said Rolle, who may make his decision before Christmas.

    He has taken official visits to Wisconsin and Iowa, and is scheduled to be at LSU this weekend. Rolle took an unofficial visit to Florida last month.

    Even though he ran for 12 yards per carry this fall, the 5-foot-10, 202-pound Rolle is being recruited as a linebacker and strong safety.

    "I've had very few kids that play every down at the level he plays. His motor never stops," Weber said of Rolle.
