Go. Wildcats!

Sulphur Springs 22
Rider 16

For the first time in school history, Sulphur Springs played football 1) on Thursday night and 2) on national television. ESPN2 wanted to capture small-town Texas football at its finest - where the streets roll up when the boys are playing, where the only thing you'll hear in neighborhood restaurants is the cheers of rabid hometown fans, where the fans live and breathe for game day. Some would argue that choosing one example would prove harder than finding one in the first place. Last night's game between Sulphur Springs and Rider did not disappoint. The two top-seeded high school quarterbacks in the entire state faced off - and number one proved just exactly why he is number one. The Wildcats rallied from an early-game defecit to conquer the Raiders in a nail-biting, come-from-behind, push-to-the-end victory.
