Section III football teams will wear helmet stickers with the initials "RB" on them for the rest of the season in tribute to Ridge Barden, the Phoenix player who died from a head injury sustained in a game last Friday night.
Executive director John Rathbun told YNN officials will also wear black armbands and moments of silence will be observed before all 20 playoff games this weekend. In addition, the game program for this year's Section III championships will be dedicated to Barden and the Phoenix football team will present the championship banner after the Class B title game.
