Trotwood blows destroys Wapakoneta despite racism comments
The Rams showed that no matter where they play at, even in the most hostile of conditions, that they are ready for a playoff run.
Ravieon "Shock" Hargrove started the game of with a long TD run - the first play from scrimmage, and that ignited the Rams to a easy victory @ Wapakoneta on Saturday night.
The hard part?
Keeping their cool after the racial slurs and lack of class represented by Wapak.
The marching band was hit with items from the rowdy crowd, not to mention the slurs heard by the band and the players.
However, no words in the world could have helped Wapakoneta on this day, as the Rams and their star RB ran, over, around and through the defense for 3 TDS, while the Rams D smothered Wapak offense to ignite the rout.
Trotwood Coach Jeff Graham and the staff did an excellent job of keeping their cool and staying focused on the gameplan.
