Cowboys owner Jerry Jones greets every member of the high school football team from El Paso

Eastwood High School faces off against Plano High School at The Star in Frisco, Texas, on Thursday.

Eastwood High School from El Paso got the blue carpet treatment Thursday evening when they arrived at the Star in Frisco, Texas.

The game moved to the Frisco facility due security concerns following a mass shooting in El Paso in August. The suspected shooter graduated from Plano High School.

After shaking every player's hand, Jones said the team was more than happy to host the game between the two high schools.

“We want to be in any way we can supporting El Paso. We can’t think of a better way than to have your youth, have your team come up here and compete right here at our home in our Star,” he said.
