Trotwood hoping for better results than 2014 trip to State Final Four

TROTWOOD, Ohio (WRGT) -- For the second time in the last four years, the Trotwood Rams are in the state Final Four having reached the plateau in 2014 only to fall to Upper Arlington.

Now relatives from that team are watching their younger family members try to finish the job. Andre Foster, the brother of current senior Amir Foster, was a key cog on that 2014 Rams team. His brother is following in his footsteps by scoring a game high 22 points against Dunbar in the Regional final. Freshman Carl Blanton joins him as his cousin Jamichael was also on that semifinal squad.

"He told us it was very hard, but it was worth it, everything we do in practice is worth it," Amir Foster said, “I most definitely want to come home with a ring so I can just put it in his face that I won one and he didn’t."

"I remember sitting in the stands with my Dad. We watched them play. They lost, but they could have done better,” Carl Blanton said of his brother’s team, “He just picks me up, tells me stuff I need to do, things he has been through. Those things that happened that year, he doesn't want that to happen to me."
