For the Raptors, last year was a season to remember, and one play ended a perfect season. It was December of 2014, State Championship on the line against perennial favorite Maryville:

Maryville scored a TD in OT. Ravenwood showed resilience and answered. They went for 2 and interception. That was then. This is now…

Raptors Trio Strikes Early and Often

Jeffries, Rowland and Rappe. Ravenwood’s dangerous trio came out to prove that last year was nothing more than motivation to do better this year. The prey: Siegel.

Raptors Highlights:

  • Raptors rushed for 294 yards. Jeffries had 164 yards and 2 TDs
  • QB Rappe scored a TD on the ground and a 70yd TD screen pass to Rowland.
  • Rowland had one TD reception and another on special teams coming out of the half when he blistered Siegel for a 98 yd. kick off return
  • Special Teams did their part again late in the 4th quarter when Holt hit a 29yd. FG
  • Defense got in on the act when Bloerden scored on a safety in the 3rd.
  • 3 turnovers, cramping, and a game clock malfunction didn’t stop the Raptors from winning 47-27 for their first win of the 2015 season.
