S&S prepares for biggest game in program history against Gunter


SADLER, TX -- Huge matchups all around the area this Friday night but perhaps none bigger than in Sadler where the S&S Rams will look for 9-0 against traditional powerhouse Gunter.

They're brining in extra seating for what Ram head coach Garrett Patterson is calling the biggest game in program history.

S&S has already clinched playoffs for the first time in 15 years, now they'll try to beat Gunter for first time since any one can remember.

If they could, it'd show just how good these Rams are.

But Gunter cannot be taken lightly - these guys are good year in and year out.

"It would be a great feeling. I think it validate a little more what we've done to beat a program like Gunter - traditionally a powerhouse and the respect everybody has for them. But it would be a great feeling no doubt," Patterson said.

"It's going to be crazy, the crowd is going to be jammin', the bands going to be going crazy, it's going to be electric. Can't wait," senior Ram linebacker/wide receiver Blake Kolhoff added.

"Going over to their place, it's going to be tough. But we've been in tough games before and we're looking forward to the challenge,"Gunter head coach Jake Fieszel said.

"They're a good team, they've done a lot of good things this year, a lot of good things. We're just going to have to get better and better every day, work hard at practice, get focused on our assignments and just execute our game plan and hopefully that will work for us," senior Tiger cornerback/wide receiver Rhett Taylor concluded.

Kick-off from Sadler at 7:30 p.m. Friday.
