Carolina High School got their season started this past Friday against nearby Berea High and the Trojans punished the Bulldogs 47-6. 2014 quarterback R.J. Rosemond guided the offense and was in complete control in the victory for Carolina and he talked with us about the season opening victory.
To say Rosemond had an efficient game was an understatement.
"I was 20-37 for 293 yards passing and 4 touchdowns. I also had 60 yards rushing and scored a touchdown on the ground too."
One thing that went unmentioned amongst those stats was the fact that Rosemond had zero turnovers. Seeing his development over the past year until now things are coming easier in a sense for the 2014 prospect. He camped at the Bobby Bentley Quarterback Camp this off season and walked away with MVP honors and it showed in the opener against Berea.
We asked Rosemond what was going through his mind during the game. Most prospects are nervous and tight during season openers but that wasn't the case for Rosemond.
"I was just thinking to just execute. That's all I could think of."
Rosemond says he feels relaxed on the field and he talked about his goals and outlook for himself and the team moving forward in his junior season.
"I just want to lead my team. I try to keep everybody motivated and let them know that we have to keep our team's goals in mind."
Friday night was a prime example of that as he told us what he had to say to his teammates prior to the game as he says he's become more of a vocal leader along with letting his play on the field to be an example.
"Yes sir I have stepped up to become more of a leader now. On Friday I told them we're going to put on a show for the people and that's what we did."
