New football coach hopes Renton will be competitive

There’s a new head football coach on the sidelines this season at Renton High School and Tim Tramp is hoping to take the Indians to the next level.

After finishing last season a somewhat disappointing 4-6 (3-3 in the Seamount League), the Indians will look to senior starting quarterback and inside linebacker Elijah Clayton to lead them.

Clayton is one of five offensive and five defensive starters returning to the squad this season.

Along with Clayton, who spent part of his summer in Texas at the USA Football’s National Team Development Games, Tramp said wide receiver and free safety Ijaaz Rashid will another player to watch this year.

Tramps aid he expects his team to be competitive this season and though there are a lot of new faces on the sidelines, the coach said all are committed to working hard.

“We should be fun and exciting to watch,” he said.

Renton opens their preseason schedule tomorrow, Saturday, against Lincoln as part of a jamboree at Stadium High School in Tacoma.
