ROCKINGHAM — Richmond Senior High School’s practice football fields were transformed into picture day on Thursday following the Raiders’ walk-through practice.

With the Raiders and head coach Bryan Till gearing up for their final pre-season scrimmage, which is set for Friday at South View High School in the Cumberland County Schools Jamboree, ROSports met with three more players and another coach to give fans an insight on what the 2019 season may hold.

Featured in this round of Raider Football Chats is senior running back Jaheim Covington, junior wide receiver Dalton Stroman and sophomore nose tackle JD Lampley. Also joining in was quarterbacks coach Jay Jones.

Jaheim Covington, senior running back

Covington took over the No. 1 running back role a season ago and finished third in the Sandhills Athletic Conference with 1,174 total rushing yards. Known for his speed and ability to stay low to the ground, Covington discusses the positive energy of this year, as well as how he’s able to read defenses. (click photo for video)

Dalton Stroman, junior wide receiver

Stroman was one of two sophomore wide receivers to put his name on the map last fall, but the 6-4 wideout is looking to make a bigger name for himself. He hauled in three receiving touchdowns, which was second on the team, but he’s looking to more than triple that number in 2019. (click photo for video).


JD Lampley, sophomore nose tackle

During summer and pre-season workouts, Lampley has made his way to the first team as just a sophomore. At 6-3, 265 pounds, Lampley is not only strong off the ball, but he has speed that can allow him into the backfield or pursue players down field. He talks about those attributes, as well as how the defensive line is looking. (click photo for video)

Jay Jones, quarterback coach

Also on hand at picture day to discuss his role and the upcoming season was quarterback coach Jay Jones. Under his instruction this fall will be third-year starter Caleb Hood and backup Noah Altman.
