Biggest storyline: Can the Rams reload and keep its winning momentum going in 2017?
Names to watch this season: Senior RB/LB Matt Beach, Senior OL/DL Noah Wasielewski
Biggest holes to fill: The Rams bring back just four returning starters (two offense, two defense) from a season ago.
EDGY's Early Take: Reavis is attempting to make the state playoff field for the fourth consecutive year, a feat that hasn't happened at the Burbank school since the 1980-1983 seasons. With just a handful of starters back, head coach Tim Zasada will have to bring along an inexperienced team quickly. Look for the Rams to again challenge at the top of the South Suburban Red this fall.
