The 2017 Mineral Wells Rams football regular season finale at home was dedicated to freshman Erin Hite, who earlier this year was diagnosed with osteosarcoma – bone cancer – that resulted in the removal of her left arm and most of her left shoulder in September. The cancer also spread into her heart, and she underwent surgery to remove that tumor. The 14-year-old artist and photographer has battled her cancer with determination and positive attitude. She served as honorary team captain on Friday, taking the field with family members. She won the coin toss for the Rams, calling "heads." She was presented a football autographed by the Rams, a gift basket and monies from collections. There were fundraisers throughout the stadium for Erin. "No Ram should have to fight alone."
