Q & A With Coach Andy Scott

Coach Andy Scott of Lafayette High School

Q. How would you characterize this year’s team?

A. This year’s team has much more depth at each position. We played a lot of underclassmen the last two years, and all those players are now juniors and seniors.

Q. What will be the keys to your success?

A. The biggest key to our success will be focusing on being more productive offensively and limiting our big plays on defense.

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

A. Dawson Pendergrass, AJ Thompson, Micheal Hamilton, Bryar Hartline, Noah Johnson, Dawson Losh, and Khalas Finley.

Q. What are your biggest reasons for optimism?

A. Just the total number of players in our program. In three years, we have been able to build our numbers each year by focusing on building our youth programs.

Q. What can you build on from last year?

A. We played a ton of inexperienced players last year; this year, all those players are much more mature. They are also bigger, faster, and stronger.

Q. Any lessons learned from last year?

A. The importance of doing the best with what you have. We had a ton of injuries last year at some very critical positions. Our coaches and players knew we had concerns but came to work each and every day and found ways to grow and improve our program. We won two out of our last three because of this attitude.

Coach’s View

This year’s Rambler team will be much more competitive than in years past based on the growth of the overall program. The coaching staff has worked tirelessly on improving this program from the inside out. The coaches and players have worked extremely hard in the weight room and in our speed training to develop our players’ athletic potential. Looking forward to seeing this season and seeing our boys compete.
