The Dubois Rams won the first state football championship in school history with a 54-30 win over Little Snake River in the 2012 6-Man title game on Friday at War Memorial Stadium in Laramie.

“It’s been a long time coming and we’ve been working all season as hard as we could to get this and we finally did it,” said Dubois senior Kyle Tea on winning the championship after finishing as runners-up to Little Snake River in 2011. “Last year we were just new to 6-man and this year we finally got into it and started getting more advanced with it besides just learning the basics and that really helped us. We stepped up, learned some new plays, learned their defense and offense, studied them for a long time and came out and did what we had to do.”

Little Snake River jumped out to a 24-12 lead just over four minutes into the game, but Dubois made adjustments at the half that allowed them explode with 28 points in the third quarter.

“In the beginning of the game, we weren’t as used their speed,” said Dubois junior Sterling Baker. “Last couple of games we’ve been playing a couple of slow teams, so it took up until halftime for our line to get their footwork ready and working so we could get some holes.¬†We’re a little bit more of a second half team. We found out what they where doing on O and we were able to complete what we were missing.”

Baker carried the ball 23 times to gain 277 yards and score 3 touchdowns for the Rams. He also lead Dubois with 8 solo tackles and a forced fumble. Jesse Hawk went for 128 yards and 5 touchdowns on 19 carries. Dubois finished with 436 yards of total offense while holding the Rattlers to 220. They also recovered 4 LSR fumbles.

“We just couldn’t answer their size,” said LSR Coach Michael Bates. “We could finesse them a little bit, which probably we did in the first half. Then they went and made the changes and fixed it and we still tried to do it and it just didn’t play against their size and speed. They’re a good football team. Well deserving of the title.”
