Despite winning only one game, the Rocket football program remains optimistic for the future.“I think we are going to get bigger, faster, and stronger with the guys we got. We also want to get the word out on trying to get more athletes in the school to join the team so we have a larger team and have more competition in practices,” head coach Lee Weber said.

The Rose Hill Rocket football season came to a close with a one-win season against Independence, but this did not waver the spirits of the up and coming football players or the coaches.

Even though the season is over the football program, they seem confident in that they will continue to improve with more experience.

“As I like to say sometimes you win and sometimes you learn, and we learned a lot this year,” coach Lee Weber stated.

Looking towards the offseason, the coaches and players made comments on how they will push harder than ever to see the results that they desire.  The program wants to improve as much as they possibly can such as being more competitive, training in the weight room, and having players join multiple sports through the school year.

“Everything we have put together for this year will be built upon in the off season. We are going to encourage kids in other sports, and to be active throughout the offseason,” defensive coordinator David Penner said.

All the coaches mentioned how they would like to see more kids go out for the football team next year and also for students to go out for other sports as well.  They all think that this will be beneficial to the program and also will bring out a more competitive nature.

“I think we are going to get bigger, faster, and stronger with the guys we got. We also want to get the word out on trying to get more athletes in the school to join the team so we have a larger team and have more competition in practices,” Weber said.

The younger players have the same view as the coaches in working harder in the off-season and that they want to see better results than this year.  Also they mentioned the coach changes this year and how they feel like it was beneficial to the program.

“We became a lot more coachable and we worked a lot more than we ever did last year but I think next year will be a lot better than this year if we continue to work hard,” Trent Barnhart said, “I like are coaches and our program and I feel like we have never been pushed this hard before.”

“We didn’t get the results that we wanted but we all kept on working hard and we want to keep improving just to see the results that we want,” Bryson Evans commented.  

The Junior Varsity team had a good season and they finished with four wins, which has not happened since 2013.  Also they helped the varsity prepare for their games this year and the coaches think that this helped the varsity and the JV improve together.

“Their hard work has paid off with their JV wins and the future is going to be bright as long as we continue to work and grow,” coach Ryan Hill said.
