By Jerry Campany on December 2, 2020

With only a week to practice, it only makes sense to find a way to get the ball into the hands of your best playmakers. West coach George Watanabe did just that on this date in 1983, dialing up three reverse plays for Campbell wide receiver Mark Ramos in an 11-8 win in the first Shrine Classic at Aloha Stadium.
