Scrimmage looms as football season draws nigh for Rams

by RANDY GREGORY

 

The drudgery of two practices per day has passed. The thrill of christmas and the first chance to compete and show your wares against your peers in full pads also came and went on Thursday, August 15th. The Rams also made their annual pilgrimage to Roscommon with the coaching staff, players and the senior parents. And finally the kickoff to the 2013 high school football season now looms just nine days away.

“This has been an extremely hard working group of players this year,” said Rockford head football coach Ralph Munger. “We have had the best turnout we have ever had as far as the numbers of kids showing up for workouts and conditioning. This time of the year is always looked forward to with great anticipation as we go against someone other than ourselves for the first time in the preseason scrimmage. We look forward to how the kids react for the first time as the new season arrives.”

The Rams will make the trip south to Byron Center on Wednesday, August 21st to participate in the one and only scrimmage the Michigan High School Athletic Association (MHSAA) allows it’s member institutions to participate in. The host Bulldogs and a pair of other schools will provide the opposition and the festivities are slated to begin at 10:00 A.M.

Byron Center High School is located off of exit 74 (84th Street) on US 131. Turn right (west) onto 84th Street and travel a short mile or two and the school will be on your left. Munger always gets all of his charges involved and the emphasis is always execution first and foremost in this type of setting. If you have the time, it is always well worth the trip to get a glance at the current year’s version of Ram football.
