After a slightly disappointing end to the 2016 season against Round Rock in the Class 6A regional semifinals, the Coppell Cowboys are ready to start back up again. The Cowboys will kick off the 2017 season tonight at 7:30 against the L.D. Bell Blue Raiders at HEB Pennington Field.


Led by senior quarterback Brady McBride, the Cowboys’ offense is eager to start the season off right. Other offensive players such as junior wide receiver Jonathan McGill and junior running back Blake Jackson are also expected to shine with the help of an ever-improving offensive line.


With most of the offensive starting line being juniors and seniors, the Cowboys have had time to grow as a team, increasing their chances of success in the coming year.


Pregame tickets are available in the fieldhouse for $4 for students and $6 for adults. Tickets can also be purchased at the gate for $10.
