Hawks for Homecoming

Rams face Iowa Park today; seek first win of season

By TONY EIERDAM

It is a team in need of a win.

And for the Mineral Wells Rams, nothing would be better than to garner that first victory of 2013 on Homecoming Night at the home field.

The Rams (0-3) will face the Iowa Park Hawks (2-1) at 7:30 p.m. today at Ram Stadium.

MWHS is still being bit by the injury bug which saw the team go into last week’s game at Glen Rose with six starters nursing injuries.

One of those starters – safety Omery Trevino – is expected back today, but the Rams still will be without running backs Devon Edmond, Josh Hardee and Kolby Parks. Parks also starts on defense.

Despite the loss of its top three backs, the Rams’ coaching staff found new avenues in which to move the football last week.

Running back Tristan Seargeant has done an admirable job filling in, and last week the Rams employed receivers Kelly Williams and DaShawn Hicks in the back field. The result was a combined 143 yards rushing, including a game-high 86 by Hicks.

Seargeant had his season high as well at Glen Rose with an impressive 77 yards on seven carries. The Rams as a team rushed for a season-high 230 yards.

Rams head coach Chuck Lawrence said the plan is to stay with the three hot runners.

“We have to build on the momentum we created last week,” Lawrence said. “We played better in the second half and we need to build off that.

“My coaching staff works extremely hard. When you have a split staff (half of the coaches assigned to offense; other half to defense) like we do, and we don’t always get to meet together and see each other.

“But I have total confidence in my offensive staff as I do my defensive staff. People don’t understand just how hard these coaches work or how dedicated they are to Mineral Wells High School and Ram football.

    "Physical training is of some value, but godliness has value for all things, holding promise for both the present life and the life to come... Don't let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith and in purity." – 1 Timothy 4:6 and 12.
