For the first time since 2017, KPLC’s Touchdown Live Game of the Week is headed back to Ram Country. The TDL Game of the Week for Week 9 is a huge district matchup between two teams that made KPLC’s Top Surprise Teams list coming into the season in Westlake and St. Louis Catholic. The Rams are the only 4-3A team that are unbeaten in district play.

After an 0-4 start, first-year head coach John Richardson has led the Rams to three consecutive wins, averaging 44 points-per-game in that span. Their dynamic backfield that features Jayden “JJ” Ross and Jasia Simien has been the lifeblood for the offense. In their week 8 win over Iowa, the duo combined for 239 yards rushing and four scores.

The Saints come in at 5-2 and were winners of three straight before falling in a nailbiter to LCCP in week 7. St. Louis Catholic followed that up with a dominant performance in week 8 in its 42-17 defeat of South Beauregard. The Saints also lean on their ground game to produce offensively as Evan Joubert and J’uan Seymore have carried the load. Through seven games, Joubert has reached the 1,000-yard mark (1,037 total yards; 141.7 yards per game average) and has found the end zone 17 times.
