LSH Rams Set Sights on Class B Three-Peat

Posted: Updated:

Over the past two seasons, the Loyola Sacred Heart Rams haven't lost a game, won two class B titles, and graduated nearly double digit college football players, but don't expect that talent level to drop off this year

"We definitely have a good backfield this year, and a lot of good skill players on the outside. We'll attack through the air and in the

run game, so I think wherever you look to hit us, we'll be able to bounce back. Our defense is something we take a lot of pride in too,

so we'll take that to heart," says LSH senior WR/CB Danner Linhart.

While long-time head coach Dan Weber stepped down last season, one of his assistants Todd Hughes took over, meaning much of the same from the coaching staff.

"It's really nice, especially being able to talk to your coaches just like you have the last four years. It's nice to be really close to

them, instead of getting to know new people," says senior QB/LB Stephen Sellman

While there will be new faces in key positions, it's more about reloading than rebuilding for the Rams.

"A lot of that is that tradition. One of the things about going 23-0, and being two-time state champs, is our young kids play a lot. They

get a lot of varsity exposure and game time. A lot of it goes back to the tradition. Our young kids, our freshman and sophomores have that attitude that they don't want to be that group that gets beat," says LSH head coach Todd Hughes.

Excited for his new opportunity as starting quarterback, Stephen Sellman admits there's a little bit of pressure to step into those

shoes.

"You're the leaders of the team. You don't want to mess it up this year, so we definitely have some pressure on it, but we're going to

try our best," says Sellman.

Not only are they undefeated in the last two years, their senior class hasn't lost a game on their home field, a trend they plan to continue this year.

"This is where everyone comes out and supports us. It gets loud every Friday night, so it's a big deal for us, we take it to heart and we

don't want anyone embarrassing us on this field," says Linhart.

"We usually have a big crowd that comes out to our games, and it would be depressing to let them down," adds Sellman.
