The Rams starting line-up brought the thunder to WSCU by scoring the first touchdown of the season within the first five minutes of the game.

This enthusiasm continued throughout the game with the Rams engaging in perfectly completed plays.

One player in particular, Clayton Callicutt, 98, performed three and a half sacks during the game.

“We did a great job executing everything we did,” Callicutt said. And with the performance brought forth by the Rams this statement couldn’t be more accurate.

The roar of the crowd could be heard throughout the stadium every time Callicutt made a successful tackle. One student showed his excitement commenting that number 98 is a beast, Dylan Hensley, freshman, said.

As each quarter passed the Rams continued to keep a forceful presence on the field with each successful touchdown.

Seeing all the fans inspired me to keep performing at my best, Kyle Washington, quarterback, said.

The only time WSCU managed to get past the Rams powerful defense came when WSC’s quarterback, Andrew Ekeler, landed a 24 yard run going out of the second quarter.

This didn’t affect the momentum of the Rams going into the third quarter as they managed to score two more touchdowns.

WSCU stopped the Rams from making their sixth touchdown at the begging of the fourth quarter after an out of bounds call on the three yard mark. However, this didn’t stop the Rams from gaining control of the ball near the end of the game and successfully gaining redemption on the sixth touchdown leaving the score at 38-6. We hope to win all the games despite how challenging the Loan Star Conference is.

We hope that we continue to improve each week, Coach Wagner said.

Rams set the record straight for the start of the 2014 session by winning 38-6 against Western State Colorado University.

During the Ram Jam tailgate numerous organizations around campus gathered together to show their support of Ram’s football. “We have a lot of spirit, spirit will take you anywhere.” Jake Jackson, sophomore, said.

The Rams will face off against McMurry next week on Saturday, Sept. 20 at 7p.m. at LeGrand Stadium at 1st Community Credit Union Filed with the opening of the Loan Star Conference.
