Q&A with Coach Andy Scott

Lafayette High School football coach Andy ScottQ: How would you characterize this year’s team?

A: This year’s team is one of the strongest teams I have ever coached. Our hope is to transfer that strength to the field of play.

A: The biggest challenge for us will be to develop our offensive, defensive, and special team schemes around our players to maximize their talents.

Q: Who will be your key leaders on the team?

A: Jaylon Ramsey (QB/WR/DB) has the potential to take it to the house anytime the ball is in his hands. Trey Taylor (WR/DB) is a very multi-talented player, having played both offense and defense in the past. Coy Pendergrass (OL/DL), Tristian Lytle (OL), and Dakota Catlett (OL/DL) are all solid returners on the offensive line.

Q: What are your biggest reasons for optimism?

A: This is just a great group of kids and players. These young men are an absolute pleasure to coach and lead.

Coach’s View

After making the playoffs last year for the first time in 27 years, these Ramblers are looking to do that and even more. With a solid group of returning senior and junior starters, the Ramblers feel that they can exceed the expectations of many. My staff and I have worked extremely hard this summer to instill the basics of offense, defense, and special teams, and we look forward to what the season brings.
