MACON, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT) – The Covenant Rams begin the 2016 season as the reigning AA state champions of the GICAA after having gone a perfect 13-0 in the season prior.



Head coach Chris Oxford is in his third season as coach of the Rams.

OFFENSE:

Last year’s offense scored 42 points-per-game behind rushers Khristian Tate and Leon Simmons. Tate has moved on, while Simmons is a senior this year.

Michael Alston ran for 92 yards in the championship game. He is also a senior this year.

Quarterback Cody Farr is returning. He completed 36 of 54 passes in 2015, but will be throwing more this season.

There will be a lack of depth on the offensive line.

DEFENSE:

There will be four returning starters from 2015, two of them linebackers.

The Rams will need an entirely new line of scrimmage.

FIRST GAME: August 14th at King’s Academy.

FIRST HOME GAME: September 2nd versus Sherwood Christian Academy.
