PLYMOUTH â Opening week at Bremen was kind to the Plymouth Rockies.
âHonestly I didnât know what to expect going in,â said Plymouth Coach John Barron. âWe lost four starters on our offensive line, weâre playing a great team in Bremen. We knew if you could control the line of scrimmage you can do a lot of things and really we did that for most of the game.
âAs the game went on I thought our defensive front five did well, especially since Kevin (Escobar) was the only one who had really significant time a year ago. I was proud of our kids. They played well, and they played hard.â
Three new head coaches made their debut with area football teams last Friday night. Two got âWâs under their belts and will look to carry that winning momentum forward, while one continues to search for his first victory against his alma mater as Week 2 gets underway Friday night.
