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
