(WVUE) -

With the graduation of three-year starter Chase Fourcade at quarterback, it appeared to be a rebuilding season for Rummel. But preseason prognosticators and the Raider head coach got this one wrong. 

"Yeah I'm surprised to be 6-0. I'm proud of the kids. They're gotten better every week, and now it's come down to the last three weeks of Catholic League play," said Rummel head coach Jay Roth.

A big reason for the Raiders unblemished record, Fourcade's successor, Jacob Palma delivering in clutch situations so far.

"He's making plays, running the offense. He's only got six games experience, he's a senior, this is it. It's not like he had his sophomore and junior year to prepare for this. He's done as good as anyone could expect," said Roth.

Brother Martin and Rummel both sport explosive offenses, but Roth doesn't want the scoreboard worker getting overtime at Tad Gormley tonight.

"I don't like shootouts, I hope not. I don't like these 57-45 games you know. I'm hoping it's a tight game, defense's rule the night, and we get one more point than them," said Roth.

Rummel might be 6-0 right now, but the next three weeks we'll really find out who the Raiders are. They play Brother Martin tonight, next they play John Curtis, and the week after St. Augustine.
