(Festus) St. Pius Lancers star running back and linebacker Nate Ruble secured another nod to the Regional Radio Football Dream Team this season. The senior didn’t put up the numbers he is used to on the offensive side, only rushing for 489 yards and 8 touchdowns, but was a menace on defense with 130 tackles, 4 tackles for loss, 3 interceptions, and a sack. Ruble tells us the philosophy of the Lancers defense.
Ruble had a strong connection with his teammates on and off the gridiron.
Ruble didn’t take many off days throughout the summer.
He wanted to thank some of those around him.
Ruble will continue his playing career at Northern Illinois in Dekalb next year. He is currently playing basketball at St. Pius.
