After beating rival Manatee for the first time in 11 years last week, the Riverview football team is at home against Newsome. Rams quarterback Mike Welcer is a great athlete, and he uses his skills in all different ways. Last week, Welcer ran for three touchdowns, threw for one and caught another. He has a chance to top that performance against a Newsome team that has dropped two games in a row. Kickoff is at 7:30 p.m.
