PRESS BOX AT RAM STADIUM NAMED FOR HESTON YATES
VALLEY - On Friday, August 23, prior to the Valley-Lanett football game, a special dedication ceremony was held at Ram Stadium to officially honor long-time stadium announcer Heston Yates by naming the facility's press box in his memory. Heston passed away in July after serving as the voice of the Valley Rams for more than 40 years.
"I can't think of a more fitting tribute to a man who exemplified Valley football," said Chambers County School Superintendent Dr. Kelli Hodge. "We will always remember Heston fondly, and appreciate his many contributions to the athletics program at Valley High School."
The signage, along with a plaque featuring a photo of Yates, were made possible by the Valley High School Athletic Club. Members of the Yates family attended the dedication.
