Oh, what a night!



An SRO crowd of 3,500, an 11-10 victory over Cameron to re-claim the Victory Bell and a posting of the colors by the Army’s First Cavalry Detachment Horse Cavalry Division. It doesn’t get any better than Friday night was for Rockdale football fans. Top, an aerial view of Tiger Field before kickoff. Above, as the clock runs out, Hayden Offield and Jordan Kirk start the bell on an hours-long trip through the streets of Rockdale. At right (L-R) Spc. Bryce Rogers, Spc. Janessa McGrail, Sgt. Joshua Reed, Spl. Cory Potter. Two days before the 10th anniversary of 9-11, the game ball was presented to Art Free, RHS science teacher and Iraq War veteran. Game coverage starts on 1C.
