THREE TO SEE

Henry Osman, kicker

One of the best kickers in the country; will give an easy three points to the ‘Riders when they need it.

Luke Ross, offensive lineman, linebacker

Will sit out early in the season due to a shoulder injury, but will offer some big time athleticism to his crew upon his return.

Roscoe Ware, quarterback / defensive back

Two-way athletic playmaker.

OUTLOOK

Entering his third season as head coach at Roosevelt, Ryan Sherlock will have his work cut out for him. Roosevelt loses a ton of seniors from last season’s team.

Sherlock says that despite the loss of so much experience, this year’s group will be a united front.

“This is the first time ever in my coaching experience that there doesn’t feel like a division amongst classes,” said Sherlock. “The underclassmen like each other and all want to do well as a team.”

They’ll have some solid competition in the Metro League Sound Division, but will ride the backs of a “vocal” junior class to get the job done this fall.
