Ram Pride '99
Jeffery II (6) finds running room behind great lead blocks by the offense line and lead backs
Josh (2) demonstrates proper use of a straight arm as he keeps the Blackhawk defender from grabbing him...
... And then accelerates away from the defense for a 6- 0 Ram lead
Freddie (33) charges forward to put a stick on a Blackhawk runner
Angel (14) stops a scoring drive with an interception in the end zone, which he returns to the 2 yard line.
Josh (2) gets twisted, side-steps, and runs the ball out to the 18 yard line to give us breathing room
Josh (2) puts a flying pancake tackle on a Blackhawk runner
Angel (14), Josh (2), and Arrin (12) reject a determined Blackhawk runner from picking up a first down
James (28) and Arrin (12) reject another attempt to pick up the first down deep in Ram territory
Arrin (12) can barely be seen through the foggy lens as he picks up 50 yards on a pass play from deep within Ram territory
The offensive line reaches the peak of the season on this play, as Daniel (51) pancakes a blitzing linebacker and every blocker picks up the right blocking assignments giving Josh (2) a green light...
... Josh (2) wastes no time and accelerates once again behind a great downfield block by Arrin (12) to go 45 yards for the TD and a 12-0 Ram lead
Freedie (33) punches in the 2 point PAT the hard way for a 14-0 Ram lead
Anthony (37) puts the defensive pressure on and recovers a Blackhawk fumble
The offensive line destroys the Blackhawk defense front and opens a huge gap
Freddie (33) keeps on Truckin' for yards
Jeffery II (6) hits another gap in the defense and cuts back behind a great downfield block by Adan (91)
The offensive line is driving so hard the middle linebacker gets swept off his feet
Ryan (30) doesn't hear the whistle, and doesn't let up as long as the QB keeps moving - Ryan puts a lick on the QB in his face and gets a hanky thrown
Leroy III (1) goes up and denies a TD pass to a Blackhawk receiver in a big defensive play
Josh (2) once again displays mad skills with a backward looking pass reception while running full speed forward - Rams lead 20-8
Arrin (12) avenges a unsportsmanlike shove with a legal punishing sack. Mark (18) added pressure on the play
The offensive line, locked and loaded, awaits the full pressure blitz...
... And responds with a huge gap for Jeffery II (6) to rip a 50 yard run
Mark (18) drops back behind great pass blocking and looks for Arrin in the end zone for a 26-8 Ram lead
President Lora blows a kiss to the crowd after a big Happy Birthday song...
Leroy III (1) goes up high to deflect a pass to the giant Blackhawk...
... however the ball is caught, and the defense attack by Jeffery II (6), Cristo (42), and Leroy III (1) is on...
Leroy III catches the giant and begins the left arm rip while Jeff and Cristo tackle - Notice the height difference (this guy made weight in his skivies holding 2 pads it was said)...
The rip is successful as the ball comes flying out (Leroy III can thank former Dallas Cowboy and USC standout Dennis Thurman for that training) and the attack reaches it's conclusion...
Josh (2) picks up the loose ball and returns it upfield 15 yards to end the scoring threat. Great Job Ram Pride defense!
Go Ram Cheer and shake them skirts!!!
One more Ram Pride before the Wild Card game... Who would have thought... 18 first year players... Go Rams!
