Worth County earns team of the week honors

By Shayne Wright  - bio | email

In high school football, the Worth County Rams have earned the WALB team of the week after their memorable over time victory against Fitzgerald last week.

The Rams were able to hold the Canes in extra time to seal the victory 32-26 and win our team of the week honors. Head coach Scotty Ward said the team was unusually quite before game time but the players say that was all focus as Worth pulled off one the biggest wins in school history.

The team was back on the field today to prepare for Turner County but coach Ward says that the win was one for the ages.

Coach Ward said "Its been a long time at Worth County since that cannon sounded late to signal a big win for us, but I can't remember the last time that we beat a 3rd ranked team in the state no matter 2a, 3a or whatever it may be for us. Hopefully it's just a stepping stone for where we want to go this year"

The Rams will play at Turner County on Friday.
