“Iowa Park has a massive offensive line,” Lawrence said. “We can’t get in the middle of them.
“If they get their hands on us we will get blocked.
“The quarterback doesn’t run very well, but he throws it very well. His favorite receivers are Westyn Swenson, Dyllan Radford and Bailey Hale.
“Dakota Schweiger is a good back and Zack Stumbaugh will also line up in the backfield if they are in a tandem set.
“But Schweiger is a load, and he also starts on defense (at linebacker).”
The Hawks are led on defense by Schweiger, who led the team with 102 tackles in 2012.
“Their primary defense is the 3-2,” Lawrence said. “Stumbaugh and Schweiger are the inside linebackers, and those are who they want making the tackles.
“They basically run cover two or a cover four looks in the secondary most of the time.”
Lawrence feels beating the Hawks will be a bigger challenge for the Rams this year.
“Iowa Park has a lot of people coming back from last year,” Lawrence said. “They are a more experienced team compared to the team we played last year, and the quarterback has really matured.
“I think their running game is better than last year, and their offensive line is bigger.
“They play very good defense, and I just think they are a better team this year.”
