Magazine selects Rams as preseason favorite to repeat as champs

Published: Wednesday, July 24, 2013 at 01:59 PM.

Winning back-to-back state championships brings with it high expectations for a third straight title for the Havelock High football team in 2013.

At least according to preseason publicity.

The state prep magazine Friday Night Football has put the favorite label on the Rams in its preseason publication that came out last week.

It lists Havelock as the No. 5 overall team in the state, the No. 1 3A team and the favorite to repeat as 3A champions.

"Jim Bob Bryant has created this Havelock juggernaut, and it will not be stopped in 2013, or quite possibly 2014 either," according to the magazine.

The magazine also lists Havelock as the top team in the coastal region.

Still, the Rams will have some questions entering the season, such as how to replace four players who signed to play at Division I colleges, including standout quarterback Pharoh Cooper.
