6 Sports Two-A-Days: Rebuilding the Ram legacy

HOLT, Mich. (WLNS)—The Rams are gearing up for a new season with new coach.

Chad Fulk replaces Al Slamer, who announced his retirement in January.

Fulk is a seasoned veteran to Ram country; he was a quarterback in the 90s and a coaching assistant for 17 years at Holt.

Just two days into practice, Fulk is already focused on restoring Ram culture.

“It’s been really good. It’s been more like family. Everybody’s more energetic; I think everybody’s… coming together [more],” said senior wide receiver Amaan Payne.

“Coach Fulk’s kind of bringing a lot of energy. We want to get back to the glory days that Holt used to be in. We want to get back to that. Se we’re all excited for that,” added senior tight end Jacob Pingston.

“The reason why our program was so successful for so many years was that we had seniors leaving a legacy. They were teaching the freshman and the sophomores how it was run and how it as done. That’s what we want to happen again. We want them to feel as if they’re the older brothers and they’re leaving something… [for] the next guys,” explained Fulk.

The Rams face Hudsonville High School in their first game Aug. 27.
