That ringing noise you hear, may soon be the Sulphur Springs football team wearing their state championship rings.
A total of about 100 persons, including players, trainers and coaches sent of the order for the official state championship football rings in late January.
Sulphur Springs head football coach Greg Owens said they will be arriving near the end of March, after spring break.
"The prices of the rings vary based on the finish chosen," Owens said. "They had three options, they all have the same design on them with their name on it. The silver is $255, the imitation gold is $555 and the 10 karat gold is $755."
He continued, "It's been a fun process, a neat deal for us. The kids are excited and impatient like everyone else. They want the rings right now."
Owens allowed any person who finished the year on the roster to order a ring. It was not based on playing time, like earning a letter in football.
