The Port Chester High School Rams football team has started its season 2-0 and has high expectations for their final six games.
The Rams are coming off a dramatic win against Byram Hills that went down to the very last second.
“I’m looking forward to the rest of the season,” said wide receiver Mike Thogerson. “Byram Hills could have been our toughest game of the season and we came out on top. I’m really excited about the rest of the season.”
They may be excited about the rest of the season, but if they want to live up to their high expectations they will need to turn that excitement into determination and focus.
“We’re always the underdog. Every game." said team captain Jason Ippolito. “But we’ve got the heart for it and we do whatever it takes to come out with a win at the end. We’re looking for the playoffs, undefeated.”
Port Chester will host Brewster this Saturday at 1:30 p.m. before going on the road for their next two games.
Saturday, 9-22 1:30 p.m. home vs. Brewster
Saturday, 9-29 1:30 p.m. away at Peekskill

“Our expectations are to win every football game. We only dress 21 guys but these kids keep stepping up and making plays,” said Head Coach Greg Domestico. “Sometimes if you work hard enough you can make your own luck and I think they’ve done that so far. They just need to keep working hard for the rest of the season and you never know what can happen.”
