With this past Saturday being August 1st,m it's that time of year again with the official start of the football preseason. At Madison, the Rams are under a new boss this season but he's a familiar face.   Former defensive assistant coach Jamie Masi who takes over for Sean Conway, who stepped down after last year that saw the Rams finish the regular season with a five-game winning streak advancing to the OHSAA playoffs.

Masi says right now the team is getting adjusted to the rigors of summer camp while the coaches look to fill holes at quarterback, running back, receiver and both offensive and defensive line. The Rams do return one of the best players in the area in junior quarterback, receiver and defensive back Tyrell Ajian.   Ajian has been offered by several major colleges Cincinnati, Miami of Ohio, Michigan, Tennessee, Toledo and Notre Dame. He is also being considered by Penn State and Ohio State. As yet Ajian has not committed.

The Rams will play three scrimmages that begin next Tuesday at Canal Fulton Northwest, at home to Upper Sandusky on Saturday, August 15th with their final scrimmage vs. Columbus West on August 21st. Madison will open the regular season at home the following Friday against traditional foe Shelby.

The Whippets also feature a Division I recruit in sophomore quarterback Brennan Armstrong, who has been offered by Toledo and is getting looks from Oregon, Purdue, Tennessee and Ohio State. WMFD will carry the Shelby at Madison football game with playback at midnight and 5 pm Saturday.
