The Rome Wolves will return to the State Championship game as the defending AAAAA Champions. The Rome Wolves dominated the regular season as well as the playoffs. This will be Rome Wolves’ second consecutive appearance in the State Championship game. They will face off against the Warner Robins Demons at Mercedes-Benz Stadium. Kick off is scheduled for 4:30 pm.The complete text of the press release is listed below.
The Rome High School Wolves will play for the state football championship at the new Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, Georgia on Friday, December 8, 2017, at 4:30 p.m. Due to the earlier than normal start time, transportation concerns, and traffic conditions accompanied by the projected attendance of students, parents, teachers, and community members, Rome City Schools has decided that Friday, December 8, will be a field trip day for our students and faculty. Due to the need for the school buses to provide transportation and the large number of students and faculty that will be attending the game, we have made the decision to close ALL schools on Friday, December 8. Our intent is to give everyone that wishes to attend the game with plenty of time to get to the stadium safely. We hope that making this decision early will allow parents more time to make arrangements for their children if they are not attending the game.
Students, parents, faculty, and community members are encouraged to go to the game to help support the Rome Wolves Football team in their quest for a second consecutive GHSA AAAAA State Football Championship. Game ticketing, parking, information, etc. will be released as soon as it becomes available. I want to thank everyone for their continued support of all the programs within Rome City Schools.
All On Georgia-Floyd will announce any events or updates as we are made aware. From all of us at All On Georgia-Floyd, we wish the best of luck and Go Wolves.
