"Although I'm honored and humbled by even being mentioned or receiving these awards, anytime I hear a name put ahead of mine, it tends to get under my skin and motivate me," Ratliff said. "That's what I said on [Major League Lacrosse] draft day [when he was chosen with the ninth overall pick]. When people asked me, 'Are you excited about the draft?,' honestly, I was going to be more pissed off about all the kids that got taken in front of me. That's always the way I've kind of viewed it. But he's an incredible player, an incredible athlete. So be mentioned with him as one of the best is really humbling to me."
