Rams Football Hopes to Win Central Valley Conference

Fresno City College’s Rams football team hopes to win a bowl game and become Central Valley Conference championships. 

After winning 6 games, the Rams have become bowl eligible, which means they will play in a special eleventh game.  

For their game against Sacramento City College, head coach Tony Caviglia and the team focused on playing an all-around good game and they accomplished that by beating the Panthers 35-0.  

Even though the Rams dominated, Caviglia is still focused on getting better and being more efficient.  

“We were very opportunistic on defense and offensively, we created some big plays. We need to continue to do that each week,” he said.

Some players that Caviglia thought played well were tight-end Ricardo Arias, left-tackle Adam Salazar, quarterback Justin Holiday and Junior Garcia, who is the backup quarterback.

When asked if anything will change going into next week’s game vs Modesto Junior College, Caviglia said nothing will change. 

The team is going to do what they do, practice the way they practice, and stay in their rhythm to try to get better.  

Arias thought the team played well against SCC because they finally came together and played a complete game on offense, defense, and special teams. 

Going into the game against MJC on Oct. 30, Arias felt the team gained confidence from the last game and learned how to play as a team in hopes of a win. The Rams won 22-16. 

Arias has been confident in the team since before the season started and believes winning a championship is expected of the team. 

“It’s expected from us. Coming into this season, it’s all I expected and the key to it is to stay hungry and stay together as a team,” he said. 

Caviglia said he loves getting a win, but it means more when it is at home in front of friends and family.  

At their game vs SCC, he felt there was a great crowd.  

“That’s important for our players when faculty, students, and the FCC community show up to watch, it makes our kids feel good and makes them play harder,” he said.

Caviglia encourages students and faculty to come to support the team which he hopes would make them feel like they are a part of the college experience.

According to Caviglia, tickets for students with I.D. are $1.
