Football Scores Big in All-Met Final Game

Aside from the varsity boy’s football team’s exciting 2013 fall season, the team also had some individual players who stood out and represented RHS by receiving all-state honorable mentions.

One of those players was junior quarterback Chuck Reese, who managed to make all-state honorable mention, and receive the most valuable player (MVP) award for the Montgomery County 3a/4a division. Reese finished the season with 2,932 passing yards (rank No. 3) and 37 touchdowns (rank No. 2).

In a wild 64-41 victory over Magruder HS, Reese threw for 480 yards and eight touchdowns, these statistics were confirmed by head coach Seth Kenton. After being confirmed by a third person, the total yardage surpassed the Maryland Public Secondary Schools Athletic Association (MPSSAA) single-game record which was 475, previously held by Arundel HS’s Billy Cosh from a 2008 game against Linganore HS.

Reese did most of his damage against Magruder in the second half. The Colonels led 35-14 at halftime before the Rams offense exploded over the final two quarters. “Everyone was still pretty calm [at the half],” Kenton said. “We know that once the offense starts rolling, it keeps rolling. It just took a little longer than expected this time.”

To add to this, there were two other rams that had spectacular 2013 fall seasons that you cannot forget. Junior wide-receiver Louison Biama made all-state honorable mention as well. Biama finished the season with 758 receiving yards on 45 catches, and six touchdowns which helped the rams in their outstanding season. “Chuck and I worked well together this season and I think we will be a lot better next year because of our chemistry on the field,” Biama said.

Another player that the rams were proud to have this year was senior defensive lineman (linebacker) Tyler Reed. Reed also made all-state honorable mention for defensive lineman, which is not easy to do. The ram’s defense revolved around Reed and played a solid role in the rams’ victories this season. Reed along with the rest of the defense brought intensity to the field and was clutch when the rams needed it most.

The Rams football team had an exciting season this past fall season and hope to only bring more excitement in the future. Footbal players all around the school are motivated to come back next year and help the team become even more victorious. Three all-state honorable mentions from a school as small as RHS is not something one sees every day. The RHS boys’ varsity football team was something serious this year; numbers do not lie.
