But...... before we get to the Route 17 Rivalry.
The Rams have a exciting, emotional and big game Friday night when they host Letchworth/Warsaw.
This is the Rams home opener and the debut of the Carroll Carpet at Bath Haverling.
Not a lot of history between these two teams.
They last played in 2015 when the Rams beat Letsaw 49 to 0 in Bath.
Bath under Coach Carroll is 4 and 0 all time against Letchworth and or Warsaw. Outscoring them in those games 132 to 33.
Letchworth has had success in their football program. They have won 3 Section V titles. 1 Far West Regional Title and done something the Rams have yet to do. Win a State Title in Class D in 2011.
Most recently they won the LCAA D2 last year and finished 7 and 1 losing in the first round of sectionals.
They have a first year head Coach Justin Mann.
He has been an assistant with the Program the last few years and with the Warsaw program before that.
Letchworth/Warsaw is 1 and 1.
They opened the season by beating Wellsville 28 to 15.
Last week they lost to Cal-Mum/BB 34 to 6. Who the Rams beat 24 to 20.
Letsaw has a really good two way player in Kaiden Davis. He has ran the ball this season 19 times for 230 yards and a TD. He also had 13 tackles from his Linebacker position against the Lions.
Letsaw did give up a lot of rushing yards against Cal-Mum/BB. Even more than what the Rams gave up week 1.
If Letsaw is vulnerable against the run and the Rams can contain K. Davis.
It should be a celebration after the ceremonies on Friday night.
A win would set up a huge game on Saturday Sept 23rd when the Big Bad Bullies on the block and defending LCAA D1 champs the Hornell Red Raiders come to town to try and get revenge from the last time they came to town and the Rams easily took care of business 58 to 20 in 2015.
