After the tornadoes, the football team was out in the community doing what they could to help clean up.
“Honestly, we used the tornadoes as motivation to keep pushing forward, that brought the team together more. We went to different homes in the community to help fix it up. This community is like a family,” Team Captain Carl Blanton said.
This year, things have been much different for the Rams since they have a 9-3 record with a 2-game winning streak as they head into their third round playoff game.

Trotwood has been outscoring opponents 74-28 postseason play, and their goal is to bring home a title for their hometown fans that have been through a lot over the last year.
“We get the energy from them. We feed from them. When they come out to the game and show us that support, it motivates us when we’re out on the field,” Williams said.
The Rams continue in the playoffs tonight against Hamilton-Badin at Miamisburg High School at 7 p.m.
