I believe rome will finish at .500 which will be a start in the right direction.Btw does anyone know who tht modified player is. He looks like he is in great shape and he was even quick on defense. Im telling you him and tht Dougherty kid are the future of RFA FOOTBALL
his name is Curtis Thompson. he is pretty athletic and gifted, but it will go to waste. he is a bad kid with a bad attitude. I hope someone guides him to help him, but in his family....wont happen. Dougherty kid...(if that's how u spell it) is a good talent, I agree, and from what I hear works hard and has a good attitude. we will see how it goes, only time will tell.

It's funny how we keep hearing about two kids who have not played a varsity game yet. Trust and believe it a lot different than jv. So lets quit the the hype and wait until the season starts to see who is going to be the future. I watched a lot of jv games last year. And there were no standouts!!!!!!!

so according to you, scouting is a waste of time? because if what you say is true, then there is absolutely no reason to scout top players/teams to find out their strengths and weaknesses. also, that whole position that pays lots of money to college scouts, and the pro draft is just a waste of time also....we should just draw straws and 'SEE' how people do....YEAH, YOU PROLLY ARENT AROUND SPORTS, OR YOU'RE JUST A DUMBASS. Even high schools go around scouting out of the area for players that can forward their program....they are called 'prospects' you stupid ass. We are only talking about a few that we know about. Why don't you take your 'student bashing', and negativity and shove it. No need to be jealous of a teenager, or parents that have talented kids. Get over yourself scab

ps, I have a nephew on the jv team, and went to a few games myself....stats have it Dougherty made just as many tds as the rest of the team together. sounds like a 'standout' to me. just sayin.

. Dedication can't knock the kid for not putting all his time in football. He plays basketball all summer long. Some kids have to work out which is great, but other kids just are natural.

well looks like rfa had another shit year its time to get rid of all the coaches and rebuild if swavley and stamboly would stop blowing eachother we would be good,the kids are good on the team just they have no coaches who know the game swav is a off line coach that's it I rather have coach harper coach these boys least he gives a damn he played d1 football at UConn and loves the game and is a fair coach we need a change swavley has only won about 10 games in 4 years and clearly is the worst coach in the state

i agree with 'former rfa player'. I don't have anyone on the team, but go to every home game, and I saw the talent and skill out there this year. if they had good coaching, they would have made the playoffs EASILY this year. and i'll be a monkeys uncle if that running back we have, Brad, cant remember his last name, is a HUGE addition to the team, and I hear he's only a SOPHMORE! well, another dismal season, but there was a spark, more than I can say for the past couple years. they had two heartbreak loses for 3 points. I heard they were a better team than Liverpool too, only if they had proper coaching. ah well... go rfa pride!

Not even close to having the talent Liverpool has. U have to remember the only reason they put points in against the power house schools is because they put there subs in lmao

I HAVE A GRANDSON ON THE RFA TEAM, AND I WAS AT THE LIVERPOOL GAME. I HAVE A BIT OF EXPERIENCE ALSO, I HAVE COACHED PREP FOOTBALL FOR 6YRS, AND I'LL TELL YOU WHAT, THAT LIVERPOOL TEAM HAD/HAS NOTHING ON THIS PAST YEARS RFA TEAM. I HATE HAVING TO WATCH OUR KIDS GET OVERPLAYED BECAUSE OF POOR COACHING. MY GRANDSON INFORMED ME THAT THE TEAM NEVER RUNS FOR PRACTICE....ACTUALLY NEVER RUNS, WHAT THE HELL IS THAT?? NO RUNNING FOR ENDURANCE, NO WONDER THEY CAN ONLY PLAY 2-3 DOWNS AT A TIME AND GIVE UP THE BIG YARDAGE ON 3RD/4TH DOWNS....THEY ARE TIRED AND EXHAUSTED. AND ABSOLUTELY NO PUNISHMENT...YOU NEED TO KNOW THAT IF YOU SCREW UP, ESPECIALLY ROUTINE PLAYS OR FUNDAMENTALS, YOU HAVE TO FACE CONSEQUENCES.(RUN,PUSHUPS,EXTR A SETS OR PRACTICE). THE COACHING STAFF HAS ABSOLUTELY NO IDEA HOW TO GET THE BEST OUT OF THEIR SQUAD, BOTTOM LINE. THEIR BEST WAS NEVER SHOWN THIS SEASON. IN MY OPINION, THE ONLY TEAM WITH MORE TALENT THEY FACED THIS YEAR IS FM, BUT IF THE CORNERS & LINEBACKERS WERE PROPERLY SHOWN HOW TO READ & COVER, THEY HAD A GOOD CHANCE OF WINNING EVEN THAT GAME, THEY SURE COULDNT RUN ON US. AND EVEN IF YOU DONT BELIEVE THEY HAD MORE TALENT, GUESS WHAT? THEY HAD AN EX-NFL PLAYER AS THIER COACH...(THINK COACHING HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH A GROUP OF YOUNG MEN SUCCEEDING? THINK AGAIN) I APPLAUD ANY COACH WHO GIVES HIS TIME TO HELP OUT A GROUP OF KIDS, ESPECIALLY A VARSITY FOOTBALL TEAM, BUT DONT JUST GO THROUGH THE MOTIONS OR FOOL YOURSELF THAT YOU HAVE WHAT IT TAKES TO WIN. THAT IS WHAT FOOTBALL GETS TO AT THIS LEVEL, AND MORE SO FURTHER ON, WINNING. I SAW PLAYERS BEING PUT AT POSITIONS THEY HAVE NEVER PLAYED BEFORE TOWARDS THE END OF THE SEASON. I SAW TOTAL OFFENSES BEING CHANGED IN THE MIDDLE OF THE SEASON, INCLUDING MUCH OF THE DEFENSIVE SCHEMES. THAT IS A COACHING STAFF THAT HAS NO IDEA WHAT THEY ARE DOING. A COACHING STAFF THAT HAS NO LONGTERM PLAN OR GOAL. THE TEAM WAS 2-2 AND YOU CHANGE EVERYTHING UP AND EXPECT THE KIDS TO SOAK IT UP IN 4 DAYS? HE STOPPED WATCHING FILM FOR SATURDAY PRACTICES AFTER 3 OR 4 GAMES...WHAT??? SEEMS THESE GUYS LIKE TO CALL THEMSELVES VARSITY FOOTBALL COACHES AS MUCH AS SOME KIDS LIKE TO CALL THEMSELVES VARSITY FOOTBALL PLAYERS...AND NOT PRODUCE.

YOU are an IDIOT....Rome must have had something for Liverpool,(minus their mistakes) because Liverpool just destroyed West Genesee 28-0 in the first playoff game. RFA put a bunch of points on the board at least. And I was at the Liverpool game too, and Liverpool kept their starters in the WHOLE GAME. "RAIDER NATION", is a RAIDER IDIOT.
