This past Friday, October 27th, the Rams found themselves in a unique position…at home. After finishing the regular season with seven wins and two losses, the Rams were in the top spot in their district, earning a first round bye during the district tournament.
The Class 1 District 8 results for the season were as follows:
#1- Schuyler Rams (7-2)
#2- North Shelby Raiders (6-3)
#3- Princeton Tigers with Mercer, Newtown- Harris (3-6)
#4- Knox County Eagles (2-8)
#5- Paris Coyotes with Madison (3-7)
The Rams only job this past Friday was to wait to see who they would play next week as they awaited the results of the Paris at Knox game. When the dust settled the Eagles beat the Coyotes 50-36. Thus, the schedule for Friday, November 3, 2023 will be Knox County Eagles at Schuyler Rams and Princeton Tigers at North Shelby Raiders. The winners of these two games will face off for the district championship on November 10th.
Other results now available at the end of the season are the season leaders in the different statistical categories. The Schuyler Rams were well represented in the top spots for Missouri 8-man football. (Note: there are 43 8-man football teams and 1,022 8-man football players in the state of Missouri.)
