Vardaman Ready to Take Next Step Towards a Title

VARDAMAN, Miss. (WCBI) -- The Vardaman Rams football team has been the picture of consistency and excellence over the past two decades in Mississippi.

The Rams haven't had a losing season since 1994 and haven't missed the playoffs since 1990. That success is to be expected, but the next step for Vardaman is to make the leap to Jackson and play for a State Championship.

"If you don't work for a State Championship, you don't need to be working," said Vardaman head coach Justin Hollis. "Our first goal is to win the division and our second goal is to win the north half championship. After that, we want to win a state championship. That's something we set forth every year."

And last season, the Rams were just a few yards away from accomplishing goal number two and making a push to win the school's first state title in the modern era.

"That's been our motto since last year: 18 yards away. We were 18 yards away from Jackson. We're going to try and find a way to finish it this year.

"We have a lot of senior leadership coming back and a four-year starter at quarterback in Cody Jenkins. He's a guy that's a true competitor and leader of our team. We also feel like our line of scrimmage guys are going to be a strength for our team this season."

The pieces are in place for the Rams to make the dash to Jackson, but they'll have to set their own course down south for the winter without having history on their side.
