The Coach

Name:  Mike Lyons
Skinny:  Coach Lyons is Randolph football.  After 30-years with the program, he’s finally been asked to take the helm…and what better person to do so than Mike Lyons.  Lyons has been on the sidelines for the Rams since 1987.  He’s been around all of the old time greats from the players who led “The Streak” of the late 80s and early 90s like Matt Nardolillo, Justin Malinchak, Billy Williams and Mike Groh to some more recent guys like Drew Willy and Frank Beltre (both of whom are still playing professional football). Lyons also apprenticed with legendary late coach John Bauer Senior. So he’s got all of the old ghosts of yesteryear hovering around him, yet he brings a ton of energy that fits perfectly with this era.
2016 Record: 0-0 *First Year

The Players

Franchise Player: QB Justin Suarez (6-2, 200) came on the scene as a junior when he won the starting job over several upper classmen and had an outstanding junior campaign. Now a senior, Coach Lyons couldn’t be happier with his leadership qualities in the huddle and off the field.
Hottest Selling Jersey: You might as well pick up your #4 home Nick Rampone (5-8, 140) jersey right now before it sells out…and it will sell out. The senior runningback only has one gear and has the ability to score on any play.
All Unruly Watch: I can’t imagine what goes through opposing quarterback’s minds when they look over at the line of scrimmage and see defensive linemen Chandler Boykins (5-10, 160) staring back at him. What is the scariest part about the 5-10, 250-pound fireplug is his ability to beat you off the snap every time. Big Daddy Boykins led the team in sacks as a junior and had multiple games with multiple sacks. Plus he doesn’t just sack QB’s, he grips them and then does this crocodile death roll thing. You got to love this kid!
Under the Radar: Senior receivers/linebackers Nick Wolmart (6, 190) and Andre Burke (6-2, 170) are two guys who will be household names by Week 2. They are big defenders who are always in on the play.  Another guy to watch for is Alex Heilman (5-9, 210), who is a returning lineman is another player opposing coaches will be rewinding the film on.
Benching the Weight Room: Returning lineman Nick Petruzziello (5-11, 225) is a monster in the weight room and brings a lot of athleticism up front.  He’ll be a headache for opponents on both sides of the ball.
Throwback: Senior LB/SE Anthony Fodali (5-11, 195) is the kind of player that could’ve played in any era. He’s a drill-ya-across-the-middle kind of guy.  Then he’ll put his hand out to pick you up so he can do it again.

Prediction

Randolph has their work cut out for them this season but there is every reason to be excited if you are a Ram fan. New coach Mike Lyons is going to ramp up the excitement level as the 30-year vet has the energy of the thousand men he’s coahced over the years. Navigating this crazy schedule is going to be the trick. It’s loaded with booby traps. But if they be 4-4 at the 8-game cutoff, that may be enough to get them into the postseason dance. From there they’ll likely have to face the Waynes, West Morris, Roxbury and Mount Olive. But hey, that’s why they play the game!
