Football, volleyball and team tennis are all happening on this Thursday (August 23) game day.
Those football fans who have been asking coaches and media how the Wildcats are doing can see for themselves. The varsity Wildcats will have their one and only scrimmage of the season Thursday at 7 p.m. at Gerald Prim Stadium. They will be asking for $2 for admission to benefit Our Day to Shine, a Texas High School Coaches Association fund for injured players and coaches. The JV and freshmen teams also scrimmage beginning at 5 p.m.
