Ram fans celebrate championship in Winston-Salem

“Those are my two cousins,” Prichard said. “I came to the games as much as I could. I fly back and forth from Dallas on the weekends to see my son's games. It's amazing to sit here and watch these kids grow up. My son comes out here, supports the team and talks to them. It paid off. It's amazing.”

James Williams was here with wife Tamara Vanover, to see son Andrew Vanover, a sophomore linebacker.

“We are very proud of him. He was hurt last year and he had to sit out. He's the second leading tackler on the team. It's great. It's awesome. It's something that he'll never forget and we won't either,” he said.

Williams said he wasn't surprised the team returned to the state championships two years in a row. “They had a good team.” And about coach Jim Bob Bryant, Williams said “I think he turned the whole program around.”

“They're awesome,” said Jenny Cruz, of Havelock. “All the boys out there deserve it.”

She didn't have a child on the field but she was still in the stands as a huge fan of the team.

“I'm just a friend of a lot of the parents and I've known a lot of these boys since they were real young.”
