As we all know by now, Homecoming came a little earlier than usual this year. But with an early dance, cookout, and parade, there was also a chance to get

another early win to the season for the Rams football team, which the boys wholeheartedly did on the last Saturday of September.

One factor that many people in the stands noticed was the undeniable heat — it was 78° Fahrenheit when the boys took to the field at 2 o’clock in the afternoon. Hoodies and jackets were quickly abandoned by the spectators for t-shirts and polo shirts.

Luckily, all of the conditioning and preparation the team has done since the end of last season paid off as they tore up the turf in this game, thumping the Methacton warriors in a 41-7 blowout.

Consistent offense by the Rams was led by the big play ability of junior quarterback Ryan Engro, who went 77% on completions and posted a 144 QB rating, as well as the occasional circus catch provided by Dante Bonanni and Noah Baker. The run game was strong as usual, with Sophomore Andrew Yoon showcasing his power and agility by piecing together several immense runs, all of which gave the Rams a spark of energy in the hot sun.           

The defense remained steadfast as ever, holding the Warriors to less than half of the yards picked up by the Rams.

The starting squad was relentless against both the air and ground game of the Warriors, resulting in their short-lived playing time thanks in full to their domination.

Pressure from the ferocious front four stunned Methacton, while a slew of tackles from linebackers Nick DelRomano and James Albert helped finish the team off.
