Struggling Garfield needs to worry about itself, coach says

By mdyer Published: September 20, 2011

Garfield football coach Bob Sax said the Rams need to worry about themselves with an 0-4 record and take care of the football this week against North (0-4).

“We have not been able to do that at all this season,” Sax said. “We are very young team and we continue to be our own worst enemy. Turnovers and penalties at key moments have cost us good drives and potential scoring opportunities.”

Garfield lost to Buchtel 26-0 last week. “Last week against Buchtel, we had a breakdown in our special teams that resulted in two touchdowns,” Sax said.

Sax said there is no quit in the Rams and he thinks their effort was “tremendous.” He said North is a much better team this year and the Rams must be fundamentally sound on both sides of the ball.

“We are getting better, it is just now showing up on the scoreboard yet,” Sax said. “Our seniors are doing a good job keeping us focused.”
