Fourcast

BATTLE OF THE RAMS

Holt and Rockford will square off for the fifth time in four years on Aug. 30. Holt has been victorious just one time in the past four meetings against the Rams from the west side of the state.

WORKHORSE

The Rams’ running attack will be solid once again since Ty Glover, who rushed for more than 1,300 yards as a sophomore, is back. Glover has proven he can shoulder a heavy load after carrying the ball 40 times in three different games last year.

TOUGH MATCHUP

Holt’s offense can be a matchup nightmare for opposing defensive backfields, particularly with the biggest wide receiver in the area. Junior Colin Jones is a rare talent that starts at defensive line and wide out for the Rams, with an intimidating stature of 6-foot-3, 250 pounds.

RELOADING

The Rams return 13 starters from last year’s CAAC Blue co-championship team. That experience will be joined by a junior class that went undefeated at the junior varsity level last year.
