The initial Associated Press Texas High School Football poll was released Thursday, and three Texoma teams are in the top ten in their classifications.
In Class 4A, the Rider Raiders are #10 in the first poll. Their district rival Denton Guyer is ranked number-one.
In Class 3A, the Graham Steers are #8, and are the highest-ranked Texoma team in the pre-season poll.
In Class 1A, the defending Division II State Champion Munday Moguls are ranked #9 to start the season.
Thursday the UIL announced that all of its high school football championship games this season will be held in the same venue.
That includes 6-man and 11-man football, and that venue will be the newly-named AT&T Stadium in Arlington!
It's the first time ever that all UIL football title games will be in the same stadium.
The 6-man games will be Saturday, December 14th at noon and 3 p.m., with all 11-man games to be played the following Thursday through Saturday.
