Devin Golden: Rampage season tickets available on team website

Last season, fans came to the trade center in Dalton to watch an abnormal concept: football in the spring.

The Georgia Rampage return that idea for another season, and fans can hop on board now.

Season tickets are now on sale at GaRampage.com for the 2014 season, which the indoor football team will play in the newly formed X-League after playing last year in the Ultimate Indoor Football League. In addition, the team announced a partnership with the Georgia National Guard where the National Guard’s logo appears on the new Rampage jerseys and in the middle of the field at the trade center.

Season tickets are $40 to $80, depending on the section, and businesses can purchase floor boxes for the season for $1,500. Single-game tickets cost between $8 to $20.

Last season, the team played all of its home games on Monday nights. This year, the schedule includes two Saturday games, two Monday evening games and one Thursday night game.

Along with the National Guard partnership, all active military receive a free ticket to all home games in 2014.

• A new athletic training facility, Champions of Dalton, will hold its grand opening event all day Saturday for the community. The business, located at 419 S. Glenwood Ave., allows training programs for adult and children and all those who come to the facility Saturday receive a free Parisi Speed School evaluation, which consists of different drills testing an athlete’s speed, running mechanics, agility, flexibility and vertical jump, among other physical traits. Evaluations start at 8 a.m.

There will be a story later this week in The Daily Citizen offering more details to what Champions of Dalton offers and the business’ mission.

• There are quite a few varsity basketball games involving local teams facing one another. Coahulla Creek plays at Christian Heritage today with the girls starting at 6 p.m. and the boys right after. Christian Heritage’s teams visit Southeast Whitfield Friday with the girls starting at 7 p.m. On Saturday, Southeast and Coahulla Creek finish the week-long round robin with the girls starting at 3 p.m.

• Dalton’s boys team is the last local varsity team to open its season and does so at home at 4:30 p.m. Saturday against Gordon Central. The girls play right before at 3 p.m.

Wrestling and swimming and diving teams also are in action this week, along with other high school basketball teams. The full prep schedule is available on page 3B.

• High school basketball isn’t the only type of hoops happening in Dalton this week. Dalton State College returns to the trade center and hosts Southern Polytechnic State University at 7 p.m. today.

The Roadrunners are playing well in their first season in 35 years and haven’t lost yet at the trade center.

• The college football teams at Georgia, Georgia Tech and Tennessee won’t be playing this Saturday in conference championship games, so everyone should put on their underdog jerseys and root for Duke against Florida State in the Atlantic Coast Conference championship game. Why? Because Duke football is historically terrible, and the idea of the Blue Devils winning a conference title — and creating another twist in the BCS championship race by beating the top-ranked team — is funny.

Devin Golden is a sports writer for The Daily Citizen and he feels horrible for Alabama kicker Cade Foster, especially with all the fake Alabama fans spewing hate on Twitter. Contact him at devingolden@daltoncitizen.com.

  • Prep roundup: SE offense keeps foot on throttle

    As long as Southeast Whitfield High School’s baseball team continues to hit the ball and score runs the way it has so far this season, it really won’t matter what the defense does.
