The Prescott Lions Club and Prescott Rotary Club teamed up to host a community appreciation banquet for the 2016 3A Football State Champions the Prescott Curley Wolves on January 12.
The event took place at the Prescott High School cafeteria.
The banquet was used as a fund raiser to help in the purchase of the state champion rings for the team.
An estimated $1,500 was raised. Head Coach Tommy Poole said the rings were an estimated $215 each, and they had to get about 70 rings.
The banquet provided dinner, with food donated from local businesses.
An estimated 200 people attended the banquet, and carry out orders were provided.
The event was hosted by Master of Ceremonies Lee Walker, Rotary president, and Charles Haynie, Lions Club member. 
The keynote speaker that night was former Curley Wolves coach Eddie Jackson, who gave a four quarter speech on football and life lessons. 
"I love to talk about football. I had 28 years of Prescott football, and I had a few years else where, but it was not like the Curley Wolves," he said.
Jackson said Prescott is a "true football town", and it was proven by the amount of people who supported the team.
Poole recognized his team and special team members.
"The coaches get awards for being a coach, but the awards just tell you how good your team is," he said.
Offensive coach Brian Glass and defensive coach Patrick Haynie also recognized key team members.
C. Haynie presented Offensive Awards to team members. Walker presented Defensive Awards.
The Curley Wolves cheerleaders were also recognized and presented with roses from cheer coach Traci Rucker.
