DENISON, Texas -- Fans are fired up about the 2019 revival of the oldest high school football rivalry in Texas: Sherman vs. Denison.

The Bearcats and Yellow Jackets don't kick off until Friday, August 30. But this Saturday, partisans will come together for the fourth annual Battle of the Axe Trash Off.

Participants in the family-friendly event will collect litter in both cities; which team can pick up the most trash? The winning team gets a ceremonial axe.

Registration starts at 8 a.m. Saturday at Joshua's Crossing, 7201 FM 691, in Denison. Click here for more details.
