"Rockville football has over 55 kids participating in football this season. The entire community is excited about the participation this year. I have a lot of senior leaders and it shows on the field. Everyone in the school wants to see this program rise to the top and with this coaching staff and senior class I know we can accomplish anything. My goal for the season is to make the playoffs. If that goal isn't accomplished this year it will happen within the next two years. I have a large sophomore class who are the biggest players on the team. I see great things from their class. Also with the large amount of players participating in the Vernon Vipers program sky is the limit in the upcoming seasons."
The Rams' record last season was 2-8.
