i'll be there.
I don't even know where Coppell is? But you guys who do please buy the damn tix so I can watch the feakin game on tv.
This is going to be an awesome game. The winner of it will most likely play Arlington Bowie, which will be another marquee matchup.
And the winner of that could play Southlake.

Regions I and II are crazy in the metroplex this year with teams that could win it all.
Coppell is north of DFW airport and west of Irving.
Do any of you guys know if the game will be broadcast on the radio or internet?
