CD Rams head coach Glen McNamee’s keys to victory against Carlisle Thundering Herd …

#1 … Defenders need to stick to their responsibilities when Carlisle goes with tricky run/pass option plays.

#2 … Find a way to contain Carlisle’s “electrifying’ senior wide receiver Gavyn Barnes, #3, when he gets the ball off of passes or on kick returns. He’s made several ESPN-highlight quality plays already this season, according to coach Mac.

#3 … Winning the turnover battle could be key in this game. The Rams may need to force a turnover or two to come out on top.

#4 … Avoid physically breaking down in the second half for the third consecutive week. It’s going to be a hot Friday evening at Landis Field, and the Rams need to come into this one with better fitness and hydration than last week at Wilson.
