Key Stats: Ligonier Valley returns 13 lettermen from the 2017 team that won 13 games, along with numerous players that earned lots of varsity game experience.

2018 Offensive Outlook: Team looks to replace three starters on the offensive line. The ability to fill those voids is an early key to offensive success. Look for the offense to rely heavily on 2x All State player, Aaron Tutino. Skill players with big play capability will continue to be a staple of this offense.

2018 Defensive Outlook: The team strength going into camp will be the DL and secondary where most starters return in these positions. Development of linebackers will be the key defensive success for the Rams.

2018 Special Teams Outlook: Special teams should be a strong area for the Rams. The return of all key components in the kicking game will make this a solid area for the Rams.
