Denison to play 3A champ at AT&T stadium

DENISON, TX -- The Denison Yellow Jackets opened up their season the best way possible: with a win. Now they'll try to leave AT&T Stadium Friday evening at 2-0.

Coach Chad Rogers' bunch will kick-off the Southwest Showcase down at "Jerry World" as they're set to spar with the defending Class 3A state champion Argyle Eagles.

They'll have a tall order beating AHS, but even with all the fanfare surrounding the contest, Rogers says his kids will be focused.

"I've coached in a lot of big ball games and I've never had distractions like we had last week, and the kids stayed focused all the way through that. So, sometimes as a coach distractions really, you know you worry about distractions they kind of bother you, but these kids are really, really focused and really did a good job last week, I expect nothing less than their best effort and their best focus," Rogers said.

Kick-off from Arlington at 2 p.m.
