With this season essentially in the toilet, Coach Mac has turned to younger players such as freshmen Joe Hansley, Conner Smith, Tommey Morris and DeAndre Elliot to make big plays and gain experience for the future. Of course, proven stalwarts like Shaq Bell and Chris Nwoke showed they still gas in the tank and enough Ram pride to put the hurt on the Warriors.
I love me some Conner Smith. The freshman looked composed as he showed off his rocket launcher of an arm. I think the coaches have a serious QB battle going into next season against Garrett Grayson. Nwoke showed his versatility by running and catching a TD. The Rams still have no WR’s with the exception of Charles Lovett, who doesn’t start but leads the team in receiving.
We need some improvement on ball handling. Too many turnovers. Good thing our defense showed up to shut down any opportunity Hawaii was given.
Let’s hope the Rams can keep their momentum next week against Wyoming. The Rams are going to have to do despite injuries to Kevin Davis and Ty Sambrailo.
