Glenwood Homecoming Celebration Moved Up To Sept. 9-10

Tuffy and the Rams will have an early homecoming celebration in 2022.

Glenwood’s 2022 homecoming weekend, originally scheduled for Sept. 23-24, is moving to Sept. 9-10.

The move was necessitated by a late change in the Glenwood football schedule. Des Moines Hoover, who was slated to the play the Rams Sept. 23, cancelled their 2022 football season due to low numbers, according to Glenwood Activities Director Jeff Bissen.

The Rams will now face Council Bluffs Abraham Lincoln for homecoming.

Just how Glenwood will fill the gap in its schedule remains up in the air. With an opponent unlikely to materialize for Sept. 23, the Rams will have an open date that week.

Like many of the teams that had scheduled Hoover, Bissen said he is focusing on adding a “zero” week game to the Rams’ schedule for Aug. 18, 19 or 20.

The Iowa High School Athletic Association has granted permission to all the teams that were on Hoover’s schedule to add the zero week game. If teams have scrimmages set against another school for that week, they are also permitted to make that an official game.
“Iowa football schedules are entering their second year of a two-year cycle so all football schedules across the state have been set,” Bissen said. “So unless another team decided to not have a season, that is the only chance we would have to fill that week with another opponent.”

The Sept. 9 homecoming date is believed to the earliest ever for the Rams.
