Bigger than football: Battle running back reflects on meaningful rivalry game


The MSHSAA record books will show that in 2022 the Battle football team took down Hickman in the annual cross-town rivalry game, however, it will leave out one important highlight. The Kewpies presented Spartan running back Rickie Dunn with a jersey to honor his late father on what would have been his 48th birthday.

ABC 17 Sports Director Nathalie Jones sat down with Dunn in the days after the game and you can watch that story in the video player above. You can also watch our previous reporting on Dunn's full story here.
