With their backups on the field, the Little Snake River Valley School six-man varsity football starters congratulated each other with high fives and hugs on the sidelines. When time ran out, the Rattlers lined up to shake their opponents’ hands, but not before first drenching their head coach, Mike Bates, with Gatorade. The players’ next stop was the end zone, where they received their championship banner and trophy while chanting out loud to anyone who would listen. “Back-to-back.” The Rattlers played in one of their toughest games of the season against Dubois High School on Saturday at War Memorial Stadium at the University of Wyoming in Laramie.
