RSHS Football Overview

Head Coach: Mark Lenhardt – 3rd year as Head Coach

2020 Results: 5-5 overall record. Lost in the 2020 quarterfinals round of the playoffs.


“I think 4A will be wide open again this year as it will come down to who stays healthy and who develops their line play the best. Many teams graduated large chunks of their offensive and defensive lines so everybody is going to be inexperienced there. If we stay healthy and get better each day we can beat anyone. If we play poorly, turn the ball over and play undisciplined football we could get beat by anybody. The parity is making 4A lots of fun right now.

We have a lot of experience back, especially at the skill positions. We are starting to develop some depth at all three levels of our program. We return 8-9 starters on both sides of the ball from a team who had some success a year ago so expectations are high, which is what we want in our program.

One weakness is depth up front at our varsity and junior varsity levels. It is crucial that we stay healthy in those spots this season.”
