Roaring Fork High School’s homecoming week concluded under the stadium lights, with Rams football hosting the Grand Valley High School Fighting Cardinals on Friday, April 23.
The Rams 44-0 loss was a tough close to a season abbreviated by COVID-19. Yet, the team, whose roster is comprised mostly of freshmen and sophomores, showed unyielding grit and kept the charge going until the game’s final whistle.
On a chilly night, with 300 fans in attendance, a lively Rams student section served up a big helping of school spirit.
Senior athletes playing their last home game were joined by family members on the field and recognized in a pre-game ceremony. Those honored were: Geo Ambrosio, Diggy Barajas, Israel Medina, Bailey Parker and Ruben Samuelson.
Despite their 0-6 season, the Rams can take away these positives: a return of a varsity football program after a two-year absence; student-athletes and a coaching staff dedicated to team-building; and a fan base supporting them every step of the way.
