|Can the "Underdog" Rams grab that elusive State Championship|
The Rams have been counted out all year as a serious threat to win a Football State title.
While other teams looked more the part, the Rams struggled in game 1, losing to Troy 12-6.
Raveion Hargrove struggled with a early season injury, along with other key players.
We're the Rams overrated?
Was this just not going to be the year they expected? Would they still be a year away?
Then came the schedule.
The Rams schedule was called soft, weak, and not tough enough to get the Rams ready for the playoffs.
Despite being one of the top dogs in the GWOC for the last decade, the Rams still are overlooked, especially on the Local & National front.
Today, the entire Ram Nation will have their chance, as they take on a ready for war Hoban squad.
The Rams, once again, will not be favored in this game despite having a elite team.
Should be no sweat for Coach Jeff Graham and the Rams.
Hoban has everything to lose as they are going for legendary status with back to back championships.
Trotwood also has a lot to lose, as they don't want to fall to 1-4 in Championship games.
The Rams have made it to the state final 5 of the last 7 years, and have reached the State Semifinal the last 7 straight, a record in the Southwest Ohio area.
If the Rams can seize a huge victory today, they will solidly themselves as a perennial title contender, a giant slayer, and a National powerhouse in the making.
Former NFL Player, now Coach Maurice Douglass guided Ram Nation back to prominence and handed the baton to Jeff Graham, who has done a masterful job in his own right, winning a State title and losing one in his tenure.
For Graham and the Rams, winning on Ohio State soil would feel no sweeter than to the Rams Coach, who starred at Ohio State before heading to the pros.
He told his players to take a few minutes and "soak up the moment." Before the big game at Buckeye Stadium.
"You will get emotional" Graham said.
Look for a inspired Rams game today.
The defense has been lights out, & healthy star RB Ravieon Hargrove has been electrifying along with the passing game.
Hargrove will get a chance to play where he could end up in 2 years.
Expect something special today from the underdogs.
The game is featured and televised on Time Warner today.
