Havelock High celebrates state title, community support

“Havelock is a great football town, and Craven County is a great football county,” he said.

A number of the players also received individual honors, including all-conference selections. The coaches passed out their team awards, including the selection of Taylor Woods as overall team most valuable player, Andrew Ramirez as defensive MVP and Derrell Scott as offensive MVP.

Then, it was the community’s turn to honor the Rams.

Lane Mills, superintendent of Craven County Schools, kept his speech short.

“Just like last year, the only remarks I need to make is ‘go Rams,’” he said, forming his hands to make the H symbol that the players form before each game when taking the field.

Havelock Mayor Will Lewis said the Rams showed tenacity and will needed to come back from a 10-0 deficit in their 21-13 victory over Concord last weekend to win the state championship.

“You have done big things for the city of Havelock, for three consecutive years,” Lewis told the team. “We will be very grateful and very appreciative when you bring back that fourth state championship next year.”
