Vardaman Coach Justin Hollis called his Rams’ 37-0 win at Coldwater last Friday his team’s “most complete game” this season.
“We were really sound on both sides of the ball,” Hollis said. “That’s what we’ve been looking for.”
The win was the fourth consecutive for the Rams and the third straight shutout.
“I thought Dillon Landreth played his best game of the year,” Hollis said. “The whole defensive front played really well.”
Landreth had five tackles and two sacks in the game. Middle linebacker Jamie Jenkins again led the team in tackles.
“He has played lights out for us all year,” Hollis said of Jenkins. “It says a lot for him coming off a fractured neck.”
Other top tacklers were Eric Jones, Cody Smith and Keon Neal, who each had two sacks. Evander Holmes, Donta Walker and Will Tutor each had interceptions in the win.
Jamie’s brother Cody led the offense completing 6-7 passes for 135 yards and a touchdown and rushing for a 143 and two touchdowns.
Lavorris Hatchett and Jaqwaves Armstrong had 67 and 65 yards rushing in the game and each scored touchdowns. Eric Jones was the top receiver with three catches for 83 yards and a touchdown.
“We were a lot more physical than we’ve been,” Hollis said. “That’s something we’ve worked on during our two off weeks. That’s the kind of football we want to play.”
The Rams will host Biggersville this week for homecoming. Festivities begin at 6:30 p.m. and kickoff is at 7 p.m.
