Christopher Ruby

Christopher was named to the Associated Press First Team All-State for 2013 as a defensive back. He was also named to the Detroit News Dream Team and Lansing State Journal Dream Team as a defensive back. Ruby’s accolades also included CAAC Red Division league honors as defensive back and wide receiver. Ruby was a three year starter for DeWitt and one of the most exciting players on the field on either side of the ball. With amazing quickness, acceleration and an “extra gear” when in the open field, Ruby was a delight to watch. His carry around the right end against St. Clair in the 2013 semi-finals into a 40 mile an hour wind to get past mid field on the first play from scrimmage got the Panthers started toward the win and the Division 3 state finals. His school record 85 yard touchdown reception on a swing pass against Owosso was a typical highlight reel of Christopher’s abilities; eluding tacklers, several change of directions and spins and outracing the secondary.. Ruby is on the Panther record books in a number of categories. For his career, Ruby rushed 73 times for 651 yards and five scores including a long of 74 yards. He caught 53 passes for 1,127 yards (21.3 average) for 15 touchdowns. Christopher returned 26 kickoffs and a handful of punt returns. From his defensive back position, Ruby ended his Panther career with 124 tackles, 12 batted passes and 14 interceptions.
