Spring-Ford senior WR Mason Scott

Wide receivers typically aren't lacking in confidence.  Mason Scott of Spring-Ford is no exception.  "Personally, I don't think anybody can guard me," he said.  The 6', 175-pound senior is expecting big things from the Rams.  "I believe that we could make the state finals," Scott told Paul Roberts of SV Sports.  He has a lot of reasons to be optimistic.  Spring-Ford won four of its last five games in 2022 and took top-seeded Garnet Valley to overtime in the District 1-6A playoffs.  The Rams came up short 30-27 in the quarterfinals.  Matt Zollers is back for his junior campaign.  The 6'4, 205-pound quarterback threw for 2,055 yards with 23 touchdowns and only three interceptions.  Scott stated, "Matt is definitely the best QB in the PAC. Me and him got really good chemistry, a really good relationship."  Zollers, who has an offer from Old Dominion, completed 62% of his attempts.  His older brother, Zach, graduated after earning MVP honors in the Liberty Division of the Pioneer Athletic Conference.  Zach Zollers had a team-high 44 receptions and eight scores.  Scott and 6'2 senior Belal Abdelrahman provide a nice one-two punch at receiver.  They combined for 56 catches and 6 TD a season ago.  Luke Ellor (6'1, 260) and Owen Norman (6'2, 230) were both first team picks on the offensive line in the Liberty Division.  Evan Strzeminski will anchor the defensive front with support from Mike Bendowski at linebacker.  Strzeminski, a 250-pound senior, made 45 tackles and 10 TFL last year when Spring-Ford went (8-4, 4-1).  Bendowski racked up 60 tackles.  The 220-pound fullback also rumbled for 406 yards and 5 TD on just 34 carries.  The Rams lock horns with the Gov. Mifflin Mustangs in Friday's opener.  Their non-league schedule also includes District 3 contenders Cumberland Valley and Manheim Township.  Spring-Ford hosts Perkiomen Valley on October 6th.  The Vikings defeated the Rams 7-6 last fall on their march to a second straight PAC crown.  Scott, who's favorite NFL receiver is Odell Beckham Jr., holds an offer from Columbia University.  "My family always tells me to put academics first. It's very important to me," he said.
