Tyner had one of the top teams in Chattanooga last season, and they expect to be among the best again this fall. The Rams return a lot of talent, including Mr. Football finalist, Jeremiah Batiste.
Tyner’s Wayne Turner doesn’t smile often, but the veteran coach can’t hide his excitement about this year’s Rams offense.
Said Turner:”We’ve got a lot of speed at a lot of skill positions. People that are capable of making things happen from any place on the field.”
Said receiver Jeremiah Batiste:”We have a lot of ballers. We have a lot of play-makers. Like I was just talking about. Just being explosive. We’ve got a lot of explosiveness this year. A lot of speed so.”
Reporter:”Why is this offense going to be explosive?”
Said quarterback Martavius Ryals:”Have a lot of weapons and one weapon that nobody knows about right now.”
Said Ryals:”We’ve got a running back coming in. Very elusive and ready to play.”
This was an offense that scored 30 or more points nine times last year.
But somehow, they laid a goose egg in their second round playoff exit.
Said Batiste:”A comeback season this year because we have a lot of things to prove off last year. Losing in the second round 35-0. That put a chip on our shoulders, so this year, we’ve got to go out with a bang. This is my senior year, so I’m going to make sure we go out with a bang this year.”
Said Turner:”Biggest hurdle probably is some of the people we’ve got on the schedule this year. It’s going to be a little bit tougher so. So we’ve got our work cut out for us.”
Yeah the Rams will line up against Baylor and Alcoa.
Said running back Jeremiah Sawyer:”We comin’. We comin’. This is our year. We had a short season last year, so we’re going to do better this year.”
