These Texas high school state champion football rings are pretty incredible

They mean business in Texas when it comes to high school football, so it’s no surprise that the championship rings that come from claiming a state title are pretty serious.

Carthage High School, which is by the eastern border of the state near Shreveport, Louisiana, won its seventh state championship in football last fall. Members of the team received their 4A DI state title rings on Tuesday, and they are something.

Take a look:

“This is one nice looking ring,” senior wide receiver Kelvontay Dixon said, via KLTV. “It’s pretty big if you ask me.”

Yes, those rings look pretty incredible, even compared to the World Series champions’ rings.

The Bulldogs went 16-0, which is noted on the ring. This was the school’s third title in four years. And those rings really are impressive.

The rings the players received are the ones that said “North” on them. Drake’s custom ring features the old Raptors dinosaur mascot.

The rings are the biggest and most valuable ever made, according to Josh Lewenberg. They contain more than 650 diamonds.

Even fans who attended the home opener received replica rings.

Drake, a Toronto native, is a huge fan of the team and official ambassador. His partnership with the franchise included naming the practice facility after his company. He was seated courtside for the team’s home playoff games and got fans fired up at “Jurassic Park” during road games. Drake even became a big talking point throughout the postseason due to his involvement in multiple controversies.

Eagles rings

Thursday night was a special one for the Philadelphia Eagles.

The team gathered for a fun evening where their Super Bowl rings were given out.

The rings feature the Eagles’ logo and Lomardi Trophy at the center, and the score from their Super Bowl LII win over New England on the side.

The rings are made of 10-karat white gold. They include 219 diamonds and 17 rare green sapphires, according to the team’s website.

There are some very cool features of the ring, such as the words from the fight song “Fly, Eagles Fly” on the outer band, and a dog mask on the inside of the ring to represent the underdog. There is even a tribute to the “Philly Special” play.

This is the Eagles’ first Super Bowl championship, so they absolutely had every reason to go all-out with the rings.

Patriots party

The New England Patriots received their Super Bowl rings on Sunday evening at a private party at team owner Robert Kraft’s house.

The rings are the largest ever for a Super Bowl winner and feature 205 diamonds. The four Vince Lombardi Trophies won by the franchise are featured on the face of the ring, along with the team logo. The team’s motto, “Do your job,” is written on the side of the ring, along with the 28-24 final score from their victory over the Seattle Seahawks. On the inside of the ring is the quote “We are all Patriots” from Kraft, whose signature appears below the words.

Super Bowl MVP Tom Brady was one of the main attractions at the event. Here he is showing off his four Super Bowl rings:

Even though he is no longer with the team, Vince Wilfork attended the party:

Linebacker Akeem Ayers shared a few photos giving us a look at the ring and party:

In this video he shared you get a much better sense of just how huge these rings are:

You could also see that Wiz Khalifa was the DJ for the party, which means Rob Gronkowski was probably doing a lot of dancing.

Seahawks Super Bowl ring

The Seattle Seahawks capped their offseason minicamp Thursday in probably the best way possible: they had a ceremony to give out their championship rings from winning the Super Bowl in February.

“It’s really an honor. It really is an honor,” coach Pete Carroll said of the Thursday night event via the Seahawks’ website. “And I think the honor in it comes from doing it together with all these guys. We feel very fortunate and we’re very humbled that it’s come to this now and we’re going to get this thing done and then move on along with it.”

Team owner Paul Allen shared a photo on Twitter of the Super Bowl rings. Richard Sherman also shared a photo on Instagram of him with his ring on:
