Last Saturday night was Rockford’s Homecoming and these local Freshman girls (all Chandler Woods graduates) decided to “Go Local.” The group of girls had a local photographer, Dusty Brown Photography of Rockford take pictures of them on a local place in Rockford and then dine at Reds on the River in downtown Rockford before going to their dance. All the girls are local girls and wanted to support the local buisness people in Rockford! Is that a little “Local” or what?
Rockford High School Homecoming
by TONY ANDERSON The Rams hosted the Falcons of East Kentwood on Friday night, Oct. 16. The Falcons lacked one win to make the playoffs, but the one thing they didn’t lack was speed. East Kentwood won the coin toss and elected to receive the opening kick. The Falcons returned the opening kick to the 19-yard line. East Kentwood picked up three first downs before the Rockford defense forced a third down with nine yards to go. The Rams stopped them just short, forcing a punt. Rockford started their first offensive possession on the 20-yard line. The Rams mixed the run and pass plays and picked up three first downs before stumbling, then Taylor Masiewicz was sacked on third down with nine yards to go.

The Rams went to the ground and picked up two first downs before the first quarter came to a close, with East Kentwood at 13 and Rockford 0. The Rams opened the second quarter with a first-and-10 on the 32-yard line, but the Ram drive faltered and they had to punt. The punt carried to the 6-yard line. The Falcons saw a hungry Ram defense that forced a three-and-out punt. Rockford started on the East Kentwood 27-yard line. After two plays, the Rams saw a third-and-one, but were unable to pick it up. The Rams went for 28-yard field goal, but the attempt was blocked.
