PARIS, Ky. (FOX 56) — When there’s a zero in the loss column, something has to be going right for any team.
A lot is going right in Paris, off to a 6-0 start for the first time since 2015.
“I’ll tell ya it’s crazy how football works when you’re doing well the city kind of wakens up for you and that’s what I try to emphasize to the guys,” Paris head football coach Tyquan Rice said.
The Greyhounds are making the rest of Class 1A nervous, and any defensive coordinator is nervous getting ready to face Jakari Ransom. The senior playmaker is confident, and he has the track record to back it up.
“Unstoppable, that’s what I come into the game thinking nobody can tackle me, just unstoppable, but I can’t do it without my teammates, front five big dogs out there,” Ransom said.
Ransom catches touchdowns, throws touchdowns, returns fumbles for touchdowns and returns punts for touchdowns and that’s just on the football field. He is a multi-sport athlete at Paris.
“He can do it all, last year he was going to soccer two days a week outstanding basketball player and of course he does his thing on the football field and lastly he’s throwing 80s off the mound,” Rice said, in his third season coaching the Greyhounds.
He’s one of multiple talented athletes on this Paris team ready to make something special happen this season.
“A ring, we’re aiming for that that’s the big thing right there 10-0 going into that that’ll be a big big part right there,” Ransom said.
“The main thing we wanted to do is kinda break everything down start over and build from the ground up foundation is important right now we’re physically tough we just want to get the mental tough together,” Rice said.
Paris looks to keep its undefeated record going when it travels to Nicholas County on Friday for a 7:30 p.m. kickoff.
