DESOTO - Any chance of rain won't stop the Friday football faithful from enjoying a great game. Plus, one of the biggest match-ups for high school football is happening Saturday in North Texas. It's a huge match-up: Euless Trinity verses DeSoto (#3 verses #4 in the state respectively).
On Friday, WFAA’s Wyatt Goolsby took our mobile live camera inside the DeSoto Eagles High School gym where students, faculty, and staff threw a morning pep rally.
News 8 spoke with a variety of staff from the High School and the DeSoto school district. They highlighted the recent Athletic achievements of the football team being ranked #17 in the nation, plus the track teams making history by being the first 5A high school to win both boys and girls state track titles last spring.
Dr. David Harris, the superintendent, also explained how DeSoto ISD is working hard to be even more engaged in the local community. “Go Green Fridays” is a new initiative almost ready to launch, for example, where DeSoto fans wearing green or Eagle spirit wear can receive discounts around town on Fridays from 20% off at lunch to free drinks or discounted services or merchandise at certain stores and restaurants.
The final pre-district battle this Saturday, September 15 featuring DeSoto against Euless Trinity is the final game of the Lone Star Classic at Kincaide Stadium. The 7:30 p.m. game is the last of a triple header that day that includes Ozen (Beaumont) vs. Stephenville and Booker T. Washington (Miami) vs. Cedar Hill.
