TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) — Welcome to the Highest of Seven Hills Andrew Ritter, as the Leon running back and full back signed his letter of intent to play for the Rattlers Friday, and on his birthday no less.

FAMU is a school he said is the perfect fit. Academics are a big priority for Ritter as he has a 4.3 GPA, and with a strong engineering school and a strong football program to look forward too, he said he's ready for the next chapter.

"I wanted a place to continue my academics where I could actually learn something and do something of value, and play football," he said. "When I saw FAMU, and coach Simmons showed good interest in me, and he actually valued me, I thought it was the perfect choice."
