NEW PORT RICHEY – In Ridgewood’s 52-0 season-opening loss to Land O’ Lakes, Rams RB Cameron Rodriguez was held to 29 yards.

In the two games since, he has 337.

“He’s been playing well,” Rams coach Chris Taylor said. “He’s running the football hard.”

Last week, the 5-foot-10, 185-pound junior rushed for a career-high 185 yards on 26 carries in a 32-27 defeat at Gulf. The play of the offensive line and Scott Kujak’s improvement at QB were key to Rodriguez’s success.

The line opened holes, which gave Rodriguez room to run.

That in turn opened up the passing game. Kujak completed eight passes for 155 yards – only 100 less than what he threw for in the Rams’ first two games combined.

“The last two weeks, we’ve gotten back to our brand of football,” Taylor said.

And that is?

“Power running and moving people off the line,” Taylor said.

Ridgewood (0-3) plays host to Wiregrass Ranch on Friday.
