EL PASO, Texas (KTSM) – The Montwood Rams will be looking to a new cast of players to contend for a district title and get back to the playoffs in 2019. With just seven returning starters, head coach Ariel Famaligi is relying on youth and speed this season.
“I think we have a team that is very hungry to prove themselves,” said Famaligi. “They are hungry to exercise some demons, if you will, from last year. I think they’re ready to get out there and prove themselves.”
“I feel like this year we are a brotherhood,” said senior quarterback Sebastian Galwan. “We’ve really come together. We have a lot of discipline, a lot of class, and we play hard.”
Montwood will open the season at Los Fresnos on Friday, August 30.
Head Coach: Ariel Famaligi
