Editor's note: Daily Sun photographer Ron Farmer has taken literally thousands of photos for the paper, covering everything from fires to drug busts to high-speed police chases at 2 in the morning to capturing memorable moments in the every day lives of the folks who live and work in the Golden Circle.

And of course Ron has been on every football and soccer field, every baseball and softball diamond and basketball and volleyball court, taking countless photos from every angle of every sport from track & field events to last spring's sendoffs for the Tiger baseball team that made it to the state tournament. 

During these impossible times of the Covid-19 pandemic when there are no sporting events taking place we have decided to feature a recent Ron Farmer sports photo in every edition of the Daily Sun, and Ron will be choosing the photos. We're calling them Farmer's Favorites.

We hope our readers and sports fans will enjoy this feature.

Today's photo is from the 2007 Pilgrim's Pride Bowl, which pitted Navarro against Georgia Military, and features a photo of the late Bo Pilgrim wearing the traditional pilgrim hat during a pregame ceremony.

Bo Pilgrim was the founder of Pilgrim's Pride chicken, which sponsored one of the most prestigious junior college bowls of that era.

The Bulldogs, who won the SWJCFC title that season to earn the berth to the bowl, won the game 24-21 and finished ranked No. 4 in the nation in the NJCAA poll that year.
