HS FOOTBALL - In football this week, all teams will be in action. The Big Horn Rams lead off tomorrow night against Greybull at Sheridan High School. We talked with head coach Bert Dow about this week's preparation; first, Dow says they got a lot out of last Saturday's scrimmage games with NSI, Tongue River and Glenrock. After looking at film, they need more consistent playfrom the offense. As far as the Rams defense, it's always been tough, and Dow expects it to be solid again this season.

The Rams beat Greybull twice last season, including a playoff win. This year's Greybull team is much better than a year ago. We will have the game live for you starting with the First Federal Pre-game Show at 6:45, and the kick-off at 7 o'clock; you can hear it live on our sister station 95.9 FM.
