PREPPING for 2018: Radford Rams

By Nick Abramo on August 10, 2018

17TH IN A SERIES Radford football coach Lon Passos was blunt when asked what the program’s focus is: “Changing the culture of the team.” He wasn’t talking about wins and losses, necessarily. He meant the deeper stuff, the unselfishness of playing for your school and giving it your all both on and off the field. The Rams are 1-16 in the last two years, so Passos is also concentrating on putting some W’s up in the left column. The only […]

Aina-Chaves off to record-breaking start

By Brian McInnis on August 5, 2018

St. Francis and Radford lined up in customary handshake lines at the end of a competitive first meeting, a cross-league, cross-division game that went 28-21 to the Saints at John E. Velasco Stadium. They got about halfway through the postgame ritual before it got chippy, broke down, and players went their separate ways, gesturing at each other, slightly tarnishing the season opener for both teams. Head coaches Kip Akana and Lon Passos shook hands, though. That — and a couple of […]

GAME NIGHT 8/4: St. Francis/Radford

By Brian McInnis on August 4, 2018

St. Francis 28, Radford 21, FINAL Jonan Aina-Chaves with a school-record 263 yards rushing. I’ll double check the math soon, but that should stand. Time’s up. St. Francis picks up where it left off after last season’s 8-4 run to the ILH championship game. Radford showed promise; the Rams will get some wins this year. Radford with some costly penalties in the waning moments here. They’ve been unable to get the stop they need. Time dwindling … Rams might have […]
