Congrats on the career @T_Ram133. It's been a lot of fun watching you as I grew up. Couldn't thank @IzzyStyle enough for giving me a big brother that I never had. Gonna miss watching you compete. #hawkeyeforlife pic.twitter.com/QhMd8J8Uwl

Have been a day 1 @T_Ram133 fan and have thoroughly enjoyed his career if this is it. And even though he’s a Tar Heel now, I hope he finds continued success during this next chapter

@T_Ram133 was such an inspiration to me as a coach. The mental toughness, the goal oriented drive and the "buy in to the process" guy every younger athlete should strive to be like. I have learned so much from your matches and have been blessed to watch you compete. #Legend pic.twitter.com/kCoPpf4zhJ
