For the undefeated Rams, Ryan Haines continued the excellence established by Neal Kasner, who remained as offensive coordinator and line coach after going 40-26 in six seasons as head coach. Those campaigns included the school’s first playoff appearances and victories in school history.
Under Brent Ullery, the 9-1 Elks bounced back from a 5-5 season, winning the GWOC National East and earning the No. 1 seed in the playoffs in Division I, Region 3. They will host Hilliard Darby on Friday night.
