Coming off a nationally ranked team that graduated 21 starters, the football Rocks are working to build on youth, led by first-year head coach Jay Cobb.  A white-out in the Shamrocks stands greeted the team as they faced the Carmel Greyhounds from Indiana on Aug. 20. Despite a 17-0 early lead, the Rocks committed a few costly mistakes and fell to Carmel 49-38.

The Rocks next take on Moeller from Cincinnati at Norwood High School at 1:00 on Saturday, Aug. 28.
