Rams Open Football Season at Parkway Central Tonight

This is the traditional season opener for both teams.

Every year, it seems the Ladue Rams open up on the Colts synthetic turf. That’s because in 2012, Ladue still does not have lights at its home field. They give away that advantage often. Last year the the Colts put on a strong aerial show and beat the Rams, 31-14.

The passing combination at Ladue left via graduation. Brandon Carr, threw for 17 TDS and was a 50 percent passer. His favorite target Jehu Chesson (53 catches, 75  yards and 6 TDs) is locked in a battle for a stating berth for the highly-regarded Michigan Wolverines.

Deavin Edwards, who rushed for 26 TDs and 1,579 yards before experiencing a season-ending ankle injury in the Clayton game is gone. He's at Missouri Valley College.

It looks like Matt Hooper will be the quarterback. Experienced players like receiver Sam Glancy, Cody Kniptash and Chase Lambie will have to carry the load.

One year ago Brandon Shepard (Oklahoma State) put on a pass catching display and scored 21 TDs overall and caught 37 passes for 818 yards, 14 through the air. Veteran quarterback Alan Gasani, (19 TDs, 1,383 yards passing too is gone).

Ladue looks for a better outcome later tonight.
