The Golden Rams though will have to finish this great season without one of their top running backs.
The sophomore from Tifton has suffered a torn ACL and meniscus and that will require surgery.
Hess was an important part of the Ram back field that features two other studs in Robert Welton and LiRonnie Davis.
The team has rallied around their fallen teammate and hopes to tighten up the slack.
