Chesterfield— This Friday night the Chesterfield High Golden Rams football team will move into the first round of the Class AA playoffs as a fourth seed at Ninety-Six, and head coach Mike Mains says he’s team might just be peaking at the right time.

“I think we're trending up at the end of the season,” he says. “We ended the season on a two game winning streak and have been playing some of our best ball.”

Mains still sees some areas of his team’s play that he would like to see improved.

“We need to clean up a few things in special teams and we need to put together a complete game,” he explains. “To do well in the playoffs we will need to play complementary football. Our offense and defense need to feed off each other. Our special teams need to help us and not let us down.”

On defense, Josh Sellers is playing real good ball right now for Chesterfield as a middle linebacker. The defensive line has taken some hits to injury but are playing strong. 

“On Offense, James McBride, Josh Ellerbe, Dontae' Crowder have been great for us the last few games at running back,” says Mains. “Shyheim Rivers has stepped up as an athlete and helped us at WR/RB/QB. Josh Sellers has played some QB and helped us move the chains.” 

The head coach also pointed out that the offensive line and defensive line have improved as the year has gone on and become better as a unit. 

And now with the playoffs about the start up, Mains and the Golden Rams will need to continue to see constant improvement and steady play among all facets of the team’s play.

“We're looking forward to the challenge of going on the road in the playoffs and working to get better day by day,” says the Chesterfield High head coach.
