WHITEWRIGHT, Texas (KTEN) - Because of the threat of severe weather, our Texas game of the week between Tioga and Whitewright has moved to Thursday at 7:30 p.m. at Tiger Stadium.

Both teams have clinched playoff spots and are getting healthy at the right time. Tioga comes in 4-0 in district play, meanwhile Whitewright has rebounded nicely after a tough 2-4 start to the season.

"That's the perserverence of our kids," said Whitewright head coach Kevin Wiggins. "They kept fighting week in and week out."

"When you have adversity... you can look at it as a reason to fail or a reason to succeed," said Tioga head coach Chad Rogers. "They chose to look at it as someone needs to step up to succeed."
