By Frank Sinatra, AAP Editor

The New Jersey Rams is a development football team that is hanging its banner at the old PYAA football field on Elm Ave. Part of the Atlantic Coast Football Alliance, the Rams are gearing up for some local scrimmages and are looking to make a name for themselves in the community.

The New Jersey Rams, a development football team that is part of the Atlantic Coast Football Alliance, are playing their home games in Pennsauken.

“Rams are animals that are on the mountaintop and take control of situations,” explains Charles Hook, who co-owns the team his wife, Erin, and friend, Felix Dosman. “I want to take control of fundamentals to teach young men how to play football at the next level.”

Hook used to work at South Jersey Mowers in Pennsauken before they closed down. During his time working there, he grew to appreciate the community and its love of football.

“I love the people here. There are a lot of football programs locally; I wanted to bring something else to the town that we can grow from.”

The Rams plan to have four home games in town. The roster is currently at 36 and they’re accepting new players through Aug. 10.

“We’re looking for players with professionalism, commitment, and dedication,” explains Hook. “We also want our players to give back to young people in the community.”

The Rams are also looking to make improvements to the field and plan to paint the goal posts, repair the fencing, redo the equipment shed, remove the weeds, and fix the lights and the scoreboard.

“This field used to be a prime spot for football. I want to bring this spot back to what it was.”
