The RTR football squad will once again return to 11-man football this sea­son after having great suc­cess in nine-man action the last two years, reach­ing the state tournament each year. Head Coach Josh Fredrickson will need to fill some valuable pieces this year.
Lost to graduation are seven seniors who were very important to the suc­cess of the past years. Coo­per and Carter Hansen will take their superior play with them to the next lev­el. Also lost to graduation are Jon Lucero, Jack Kerr, Chris Onken, Zach Reese and Tucker Baune.
