Rams Recap

Raceland just wrapped up arguably its best football season in its 88-year program history.

What can't be argued is that the Rams won their first region title, surpassed 500 wins and closed out with a valiant effort against a very talented Williamsburg team.

The Rams, especially the seniors, overcame a tremendous amount of adversity. Whether it was losing loved ones or suffering career-ending injuries, this group withstood the curveballs thrown their way.

Most importantly, they did it together and represented their school and community proudly.

Thanks to Miss 1,000!

The Monday Morning Quarterback would like to extend a sincere "Thank you!" to Stephanie Huddle, the QB's 1,000th Twitter follower. She predicted winners with the panel all season long, all while sticking by her East Carter Raiders.

Sports writer Rocky Stanley showed why he is a veteran, sealing up the best record this past weekend.
