And when we say Ram Fam, we don’t just mean the students. The Ram Fam is the community that makes up Angelo State - students, faculty, staff, alumni, donors - even community members and our youngest Ram fans.
Nothing embodied the spirit of the Ram Fam more than a moment at Senior Day on Saturday. When ASU senior James Kirksey’s family couldn’t make it to the Senior Day presentation, one of his biggest fans, Hunter Christo, joined him at Phil George Center Court for the Senior Day presentation.
Kirksey chose Christo to stand with him. Christo, of course, obliged, because at Angelo State, the Ram Family takes care of their own.
Ram Fam = Real Deal

Hunter wears James Kirksey’s number 3. James is a 6’4” guard for the Rams.
Hunter and James wait side by side for the senior presentation.
In the meantime, Hunter offers some strategic pointers.
When James’ family could not stand with him on Senior Night, he chose Hunter to do so. In James’ words, “He has been my biggest fan all season.”
James and Hunter forged a lifetime bond, embodying the true spirit of the Ram Fam.
