Rams start football season hopeful of wins to come
Building off two very strong seasons before the very hopeful 2018-19 season, the RHS football program seems to be peaking at just the right time. The Rams’ football team looks to make a historic run this season, but to do that, they must be fully prepared, and senior captain Julian Lowenstein believes that they are. Lowenstein believes that the summer workouts play a big role during the big-time spring games.
“Summer workouts help the team in more ways than just getting them stronger. The workouts help bring everyone on the team closer and develop a bond,” Lowenstein said.
Good leadership can also be given credit to the last two seasons— the Ram seniors clearly know what it takes to win and are passing that down to the underclassmen. To be respected and looked up to on the team, a player must earn that by doing the right thing and leading by example.
Leadership plays a very significant part in winning sports teams, just as Lowenstein said being a leader on the team means “everyone looks up to you as well as looking at you to do the right thing.”
Seeing as how he has been a 4-year Varsity starter, he has earned this title. The Rams opened the football preseason with a tough opponent, facing off against Armwood—a Florida powerhouse. The Rams are very young but very hopeful, and this showed on Friday night in the Ram Bowl when they got down by a couple of touchdowns but never gave up.
The goal is very big this year, the program looks to be the first state championship team in program history. Lowenstein believes they have the confidence, talent, and leadership to achieve this goal but says they are working one game at a time.
