ROCKINGHAM – During last month’s State of the Program address, Richmond Senior High School head football coach Bryan Till made several promises to packed house of supporters. And one of those promises was his continued dedication in the program’s growth and development.


And the man who never stops working with and developing his staff and his players, even in the offseason, is ramping up for his second season at the helm of the program.

Till’s first step in furthering the status of the Raiders football program, which spans from youngsters on the youth development teams all the way to high schoolers, will be a parent meeting on Thursday, March 22, in the RSHS cafeteria at 6 p.m.

Open to the parents and families of all current and hopeful future Raiders players, the meeting will cover a plethora of topics and changes regarding the upcoming 2018 season.

During the meeting, Till will go over the recruiting process, more specifically what players should expect to do in each grade. He will also highlight the program’s expectations for players and social media, as it can be a powerful tool in helping athletes on and off the field.

“This is meeting is really important for all of the parents who are coming into our program new, and for those who are already here,” Till said. “We want them to know what the new responsibilities are for their child this year.”

As with any sport from season to season, there are several changes and new information about the forthcoming season that Till wishes to relay to parents.

“We have several changes to what the schedule was last summer, so it is important that parents are aware in enough time to maximize their ability to plan with the schedule,” Till explained. “We are really looking forward to working together and getting all of our folks on the same page.”

Other topics to be discussed by Till are NCAA eligibility, high school eligibility, the team’s spring practice schedule and middle school players’ workout schedule. Also to be noted are upcoming summer camps, practices, and workout schedule, and Till will go into details about the start of next season.  

The Raiders, who went 7-5 in 2017, are looking to reclaim state championship glory in 2018. And for Till and company, it all starts now.
