From the Sideline

“Ronna was a strong presence defensively for the Trojans football team this year. Even though he missed a couple of games due to injury, opposing league coaches still saw him as a top linebacker in the league and voted him first-team all-league.

“In addition to linebacker, Ronna was a steady contributor to the Trojan offense. His physical running style earned him second team all-league honors as a running back as well. Ronna’s first love, though, is rugby, which he plays on the Rainier Highlanders team and hopes to play in college as well.”
