Lewis-Palmer is preparing for their season under a new head coach. For the first time in a quarter century, it'll be without Tony Ramunno. After 30 years coaching in some capacity with the Rangers, Ramunno stepped down due to a heart condition. Dustin Tupper, an assistant with the program for the last nine years, takes over, and the team won't change a whole lot.
"It was really hard to get the news that my buddy couldn't coach with me, so that's hard without him out here" said Tupper. "Aside from being bummed my friend couldn't coach with me, it's been awesome."
"Coach Romunno was coach Tupper's mentor for a long time," said Linebacker Brad Ellis. "Coach Tupper is here, and he's still bringing that 3-to-1 pace back to us, and we're still hitting it with all we got with coach Tupper, so, you know, not much has changed."
The Rangers open up against Mesa Ridge.
