Key Newcomers:

Key Stats: The Rams were well balanced in 2016 with 141 yards per game through the air and 140 yards per game on the ground. Fifteen returning players caught passes last year while 12 rushers return with varsity experience.

2017 Offensive Outlook: We are returning 31 letter winners from last season. We are hopeful that this gained experience will lead to on field success.

2017 Defensive Outlook: We have not proven ourselves as a team that can effectively stop the run on defense and run the football while on offense. This is what wins football games and we need to display this on Friday nights if we want to be a playoff caliber team.

2017 Special Teams Outlook: Although we are a relatively veteran team, we have inexperience in the kicking game.
