WEATHERSFIELD, Ohio (WYTV) – After making back-to-back postseason trips in 2004 and 2005, the well has run dry for Mineral Ridge.
It has been a decade since the Rams have reached the playoffs and to get back to Week 11 in 2016, they will rely heavily on several young players to get the job done.
Jeff Whittaker is in his 3rd season as head coach in Weathersfield and has some major holes to fill this season.
The Rams lost both their starting quarterback and running back to graduation and have a slew of players are competing for QB including Jacob Lesko and Michael McLean.
Justin Cox returns after leading the team in tackles a year ago.
Coach Whittaker believes the Rams speed will be their biggest asset this season.
Back-to-back home games to start the year as Ridge welcomes Py. Valley and Lisbon to Weathersfield. Blue-Tier play starts September 30 at Sebring and then a tough finish, two of three on the road with trips to Western Reserve and Jackson-Milton.
