The Carmel High School Rams have won the New York state football championship. The team was undefeated all season and beat their semifinal rivals, Buffalo’s Bennett Tigers, in Syracuse on Saturday to cap the Class AA Championship title. It is the first time the Carmel Rams, or any team from Putnam County, has won the state championship. A parade is being held this Saturday to celebrate the team. The Putnam County Championship Parade Committee, made up of Carmel High School graduates and community leaders, is organizing the event. Saturday’s parade will start at 11am at Reed Memorial Library and continue to the Historic Putnam County Courthouse.
