Rams have to show up focused and determined to play their best game of football all year to have a shot at winning this. I think it’s no surprise that Alto is going to be the heavy favorite here. Rams CAN win, it is possible. If jackets have an off week or sleep on Joaquin and Joaquin has an on night the it could be an upset. But the odds are not in joes favor

Just glancing over their schedules. Looks like each team is the best the other has seen all year. I’m hoping the stakes of this game and the competition bar being raised will bring the best out in both of these teams.

I will say this:

No way Alto sleeps on Joaquin. No way. Coach Ricky Joe Meeks will have those boys focused and ready. 💯 guaranteed. There is no looking ahead. One week at a time.

Number 2 team in the region vs arguably number 4 in the region. We finally got something intriguing brewing. I just hate how inconsistent rams have been all year.

I agree with Sting.  No looking ahead.  Now, looking back on the other hand...We haven’t forgotten. 😏

Who do you have penciled in at number 3?

I’m assuming Harleton since they beat Joaquin but to be honest with you I’m only basing all this off of what others have said in the past few weeks. My information is limited on the region as a whole

Going to be an interesting week!  It seems Harleton has come out of nowhere. Great turn around story! That will be a battle with Carlisle. A couple 10-2As vs 11-2As! I like it!

I think 2016 & 2017 is going to guarantee that this Alto bunch is fully locked in on Joaquin. A lot of these seniors were around for those 2 match ups.

Yes sir!! Absolutely. And if they don’t think about it, their parents will remind them! 😂

This game won’t be about hype or remembering or payback. This game will be about execution and controlling emotions. Both teams know what each team represents and brings to the table. Whichever team makes fewest mistakes and executes their game plan will come out on top. Rams had several holding and stupid penalties again that killed big plays. Can’t have that as the competition gets better.
