Inside the Huddle with the Sylvania Rams

By Marla Jones, Managing Editor •

SYLVANIA, Ala. — For my latest stop on this season of Inside The Huddle, I was able to return to my old stomping grounds and visit with my alma mater, the Sylvania Rams! I graduated from Sylvania, my kids played ball there and hopefully one day, I will see my grandsons play on the field where their dads played.

Football is a way of life for people in Sylvania.  We begin talking about next year’s season as soon as one season is over.  You can be a Monday morning quarterback at the gas station almost anytime.  In Sylvania, we love our team.  It is quite evident, when you drive by the practice field and see the fans lined up watching the boys practice. We are waiting for that year….the year when our team gets to shine. The Sylvania Rams have the talent, speed and skills to be a big contender in Class 3A football this season.

As I walked to the field, I was amazed at the size of the team. After watching the team go through agility drills, I can say without doubt that Sylvania will be the team to watch this season.

After graduating several seniors last year, the Rams have four seniors ready to pick up their slack. They have eight players returning on offense, and eight on defense as well. 

Coach Matt Putnam is returning for his fifth season as Head Coach of the Sylvania Rams. Returning coaches are Ryan Clark and Zach Hart with Bentley Ray, Dillon Mitchell and Evan Richards joining the staff for the first time this year.

The Rams have the determination and talent to succeed in 2018. I am betting that they will be on the hunt for that blue trophy come December.
