It’s hard to make all the high school football games in person, leaving it hard to know if the mighty Rams won the game.

It’s not hard anymore! All one needs to do is drive by The Baker Hotel now and look for the bell tower to be glowing with red light. Red means win says Head Football Coach Seth Hobbs.

“I think it’s a great idea and something we can definitely identify with as our own.Lots of towns have their own great traditions, but nobody else has the Baker.Now our job is to keep giving them a reason to light it up,” said Hobbs.

The Rams are looking to move to 3-0 on the season this Friday against Benbrook. It’s also Homecoming Week with a parade set for Thursday at 6pm followed by a pep rally and bonfire at the MW High School parking lot.
