A JROTC honor guard carries the colors to midfield Tuesday, prior to the national anthem sung by the Rio Rancho High School choir, and the soccer game between visiting Capital High and the host Rams. At far right are four first responders who were honored and given gifts; from right, they are Rio Rancho Police Officer John Roskos, Bernalillo County Deputy 1st Class Lorenzo Mora, and RRPD officers Tyler Argo and Elijah Garcia. The pre-game event is held annually, as close to 9/11 as possible, said organizer Jenifer Rork Romero. The rams beat the Jaguars, coached by former Ram Santana Orozco.
