double Simmonds said the Rams defense is with four players who arcbeing courted by Division I schools and several underclassmen who could be top college prospects in fiuture not a weak one There arc no weak links he Weve got to show them multiple some and just hope we can keep moving the Their front seven are so good that their back four just back up and dont let you To score a couple of times
