Defense Led 2013 Rams


Shelbyville was a 2nd half team, out-scoring their opponents 105 to 51 in the 2nd half. They out-scored their opponents 67 to 19 in the 4th quarter.

A testament to the Rams ability to move the ball and their opponents scoring on big plays, was that the Rams had more 1st downs than their opponents, 91 to 88. The Ram passing game was better than their opponents. Shelby passed for 1146 yards (91 of 187) to their opponents 1089.

However, the Rams were doubled up in rushing by their opponents, 1691 to 755. The Rams had twice as many penalties and twice as many penalty yards than their opponents. The Rams were equal with their opponents in turnovers, averaging two per game.

The Ram defense was led by senior Matt White, who missed most of last year due to injury. White had 71 tackles (38 solo, 33 assists). He had five tackles for loss, blocked a kick and recovered two fumbles. Three other defenders were standouts.

Junior Adam Hudson recorded 70 tackles, including a team-high 45 solos (25 assists). He had seven tackles for loss and two fumble recoveries.

Junior Tice Robinson registered 50 tackles (38 solo, 12 assists), despite missing the first two games due to injury. Robinson had a fumble recovery and an interception for a 25-yard touchdown.

Junior Jared Finley was uniquely effective on defense. He recorded 52 tackles (37 solo, 15 assists) and 9 of them were for loss, a team-high. He pressured the quarterback forcing bad passes, knocked down passes, tipped a pass leading to a pick six, forced fumbles, and intercepted one pass.

Junior Mike Ulrich had 23 tackles and 7 of them, almost a third, were for losses.

Shelby had 48 tackles for loss in 9 games (5.33 per game).

The Ram defense picked off six passes. Wyatt Fox picked off two passes for 31 yards in returns. He picked off a third pass for a TD, but it was called back due to a penalty. Zach Williams had an interception with a 29 yard return.
