Westlake Playoff Preview

The Westlake Rams wrapped up an undefeated season and claimed the top spot in District 4-3A with a 34-0 win over Iota.

"It's one of the greatest things that could have happened to a coach. It's very, very just unbelievable," says Westlake head coach Max Caldarera.

"I kind of felt it, we've got a strong team, we've been together since middle school growing up together, so I kind of thought this would be the year," says Senior Wide Receiver Jacob McInnis.

This year, the Rams outscored their opponents 296 to 41. But as good as the first 10-0 season in school history has been, they want it to get even better with a trip to the Superdome, so they've stopped talking about their regular season perfection to focus on their first round opponent, Northeast.

"It's time to move on and take it one game at a time. It's the third season, the playoff season, and we've drawn a tough assignment in Northeast and we've got a lot of work ahead of us," says Caldarera.

"There's a lot of pressure because of the perfect record. Now, if we lose a game we go home no matter what," says Rams Senior Defensive Tackle Scotty Foy.

"If you win, you move on, if you lose you go home. I'm a senior, I don't want to go home," says McInnis.
