Coach: Ed Shields (9)
Defensive Outlook: After a rough season defensively, the Rams are looking to regroup and come back with a new strategy. During their 10 games last season, the Rams gave up 37 or more points to four different op- ponents. The entire defense will have to step up in order for the team to have success. Young and junior Ar- mani Wooden are two cornerbacks that will give opposing offenses prob- lems. Young has strength along with speed, which keeps his tackles are on point, and his speed helps him keep up with receivers in coverage. Wood- en has had many defensive touch- downs in his football career due to his excellent coverage skills.
Coach’s Quote: “I feel good about the season. I feel we will get better as we go through the season. I have some 10th graders that started on varsity last season that I am look- ing at to get better.” – Ed Shields
Scouting Report: Suitland’s of- fense has the potential to be one of the best in the county. With weapons like Squire and Young leading the way, the sky is the limit. Squire should have a career year and run for more than 1,000 yards.
Breakaway Potential: Suitland has a tough schedule with games against Cape Henlopen, Douglass, Largo and Flowers before ending the season at home against Gwynn Park. The Rams can prove they can hang with the best in their league by having a successful season. If they can defeat two or three of those tough oppo- nents, they will start to be in the con- versation as one of the better 4A teams in Prince George’s County.
