I am very proud of all of the boys, and I am impressed with the way that our seniors are leading the team in a positive direction. The character of these seniors, led by co-captains Callum Malcolm, Tommy Schneider and Jake Dearborn, is displayed in everything they do and it is emulated by the younger players who they lead and mentor. The team is off to a great start, and I am looking toward a very successful season as the team competes and as these boys mature into the finest group of young men that I have had the privilege of coaching.” The Rams will travel to Upper Merion on Thursday.
