The junior high football team will go against Perry Central next week at 6 p.m. Perry Central could potentially have the advantage since it’s a home field game. Paoli’s first challenge was the Springs Valley Blackhawks with the Rams triumphing with both seventh and eighth grade. All coaches were impressed, especially considering this time last season, the seventh grade had only won two games. The eighth grade had an undefeated streak.
“Hard work beats talent when talent fails to work hard,” said head coach Adam Stroud.
To Stroud and all of the other coaches, this quotes fires up some inspiration before every game. The Perry Central Commodores and Paoli Rams will be an interesting game to see from kickoff.

On Tuesday, August 19, the Fall Sports Kick-off Bonfire was held after the Salem volleyball game. Students, players and staff members made their way to the bonfire area behind the football locker rooms.
“It’s a great way to kickoff the fall athletic season,” said Principal Todd Hitchcock. “It’s great to see all of our athletes and students come out to support each other.”
At the Bonfire the Pride of Paoli played and athletes who represented different fall sports talked a little about their upcoming seasons.
The number of students represented at the Bonfire showed the students and staff support the Rams this season. Hitchcock commented at the Kick off Bonfire that all fall sports will have begun by this Friday.
