Kilgore College will honor this year’s football team with championship rings, but the college is looking for sponsors to offset the cost of the hardware.
The rings are a reward for this year’s team that defeated Navarro College 42-28 Nov. 7 in Corsicana for the Southwestern Junior College Football Conference championship.
The Rangers will play in a bowl game the first part of December (TBA).
“We are excited about this team’s success and know they deserve something as a reward for their hard work,” said Jimmy Rieves, athletic director. “We appreciate any donations people can make. The kids deserve it.”
The college is asking for potential donors to “Sponsor a Ranger” for $100 each.
To make a donation, contact athletic director Jimmy Rieves at 903-988-7536 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
