What does your offense need to improve on from last year?
Our offense needs to improve our red zone efficiency from last year and put points on the board when the opportunity presents itself. With all of our skill players returning from last years 2018 WPIAL Championship team…expectations are extremely high for the Rams offense as always.
What does your defense need to improve on from last year
The Rams defense lost two of the schools best all time linebackers in Tyler King and Anthony Cerminara…and those are shoes you really can’t fill. But the cupboard isn’t bare and with most of the secondary returning they should be able to lead the Rams in their Championship title defense in 2019.
What are your overall thoughts on this years team?
The Rams will be looking to 3 peat in 2019 but will need a few key seniors and their extremely talented JR class to lead them in their efforts this season. QB Cole Spencer will need to continue on his trajectory for this team to have the same success as they did in 2018 behind his leadership.
