Rockford football season kicks off with annual Hots ‘N Brats

As has become tradition for the Rockford football team, the annual Hots ‘N Brats event will be held on Friday, August 21. This fun-filled evening gives everyone in the community the opportunity to get up close and personal with the players and their families as well as enjoy a good old-fashioned hot dog barbeque. The event kicks off at Ted Carlson Memorial Stadium at 4:45 p.m. and will include pictures with your favorite Ram players, viewing of a practice, dinner around 7:15 p.m., raffle drawings for some great prizes, and more. In the event of inclement weather, the event will be held in the high school cafeteria.

The Rams will open the season at Davison on Friday, August 28. Their home opener will be Thursday, September 3 against Holt. For game times and the Rams’ complete schedule, visit
