Another season is well underway as week two of the 2018/2019 football season approaches. There is a lot of new talent and big hopes for reaching another state title. This past year the 2017-2018 freshman class won the first conference championship in the history of Rocky Mountain High School. As the new freshman team settles in, the JV/Varsity teams prepare for war.

Some things to look out for: Rocky is known for being a “family,” referring to how well they work together. Once they are on a roll and have the momentum, there is no stopping them. They work together so well, it’s like if the Power Rangers morphed together at the end of each episode.


Sadly, however, the first game was a loss, so there is a lot of room for improvement. The team hopes to redeem themselves with a win this Friday against Chaparral High. A win this week would leave the Lobos with a record of 1-1 and would definitely be a morale booster for the rest of the season.


Players to watch:

  • Dominic Gallelli, DT #49, Varsity.
  • Beau Vanvalkenberg, DE #59, Varsity/JV.
  • Sean Kidd, HB #24, Varsity/JV.
  • Calvin Brandl, QB #8, Varsity.  
  • Geoffrey Reich, DE #11, Varsity.
  • Tony Yuan, CB #15, Varsity.


Must see games:

9/28 7pm.  RMHS vs. Poudre (Homecoming) at home

10/5  7pm RMHS vs. Fossil Ridge at home

10/19  7pm RMHS vs. Horizon (Senior Night) at home
