2021 was a historic season for the MICDS Rams Football Program. A 42-28 win over St. Louis University High (SLUH) was the first win over a Class 6 team in the school’s history. Five touchdown receptions by PJ Behan ’22 in the Park Hills Central game appears to be a single-game record. After decisive wins over Westminster (49-14), Priory (42-7), and a homecoming shutout over John Burroughs (35-0), the Rams took on conference power Lutheran North and came through victorious (56-37), securing a second consecutive conference title. Convincing wins over Lutheran South (44-7) and St. Dominic (47-13) led to the final game versus Chaminade, which ended with an exciting 56-34 win; a 97-yard pass from Reagan Andrew ’22 to Winston Moore ’23 was the longest play of the season. The Rams soundly defeated both Soldan (62-20) and Parkway North (42-6) in the playoffs to earn a District Championship. In the State Semifinals, the Rams played Smithville, the #1 ranked team in Class 4, and fell 36-40 after a difficult fourth quarter. The Rams finished the season 12-1 and ranked #2 in Class 4 and #2 among big schools in metro St. Louis. Andrew was selected the Class 4 Offensive Player of the Year by the MOFBCA. The following players also earned All-State status: Andrew 1st Team QB; Steve Hall ’23 1st Team RB; Nate Schuckman ’23 1st Team OL; Bjorn Sjogren ’22 1st Team DB; Landon Gelven ’22 1st Team Kicker; Behan 2nd Team WR; Gus Baisch ’22 2nd Team LB, and Moore 3rd Team WR. The team captains for the 2021 Rams Football Team were Andrew, Behan, Sjogren, Baisch, Jack Hayes ’22, and Hall.
No Late Start for MS and US - Wednesday, February 1
In view of the lost instructional day Monday, the Middle and Upper Schools will run block schedules through the end of the week (C, D, E, and F rotations). This calendar change means that, except in the Lower School, we will NOT run a late-start Wednesday schedule on February 1. Lower School will still have a late start. Middle and Upper School classes will begin promptly at 8 a.m. on Wednesday, February 1.
