Caddell did say that it is expected to be some evening the week of Jan. 5, however.
“The plan is that it’s going to start at 5 p.m., and then we’ll bring in the team, the cheerleaders, the band and everyone else we need to at 6,” said Caddell. “At that time, we’ll be doing the recognitions and the congratulations and honors.”
Nothing is set in stone yet, Caddell added, as organizers still need to get in touch with all the Wildcat coaches, as well as the leaders of the cheerleaders, band and drill team to coordinate all the activities.
However, if all goes as planned, there will be live music and more after all the honorary recognitions have been taken care of.
“We’re calling it ‘The Tailgate Party of the Year,’” Caddell explained. “It will be on the square, and people can bring their barbecue cookers like they would at the game, and there will be burn barrels to keep warm by, things like that.”
The Chamber, the city of Sulphur Springs and Sulphur Springs Independent School District are all more than happy to be coordinating the event to properly recognize the incredible efforts of the Wildcats to bring the school and city its first-ever high school football championship. But anyone who wants to help sponsor the event is more than welcome to lend a hand.
“Anyone who wants to be a sponsor can give us a call here at the Chamber,” Caddell said.
The number to the Chamber is 903-885-6515. That’s the same number the Chamber has had for years at its former location, but the offices recently moved to downtown. The Chamber is now located at 300 Connally Street, on the southwest corner of Connally and Davis streets.
