He has seen the game, and he knows that the students and the fans put a lot of importance on this one game, and for good reason.
Moebes said, "It's special. I mean, it's unique and unlike any other. I heard a stat last year, that you know, the rivalry week within 3-5A there were roughly 60,000 people watching 3 football games. That's just remarkable. It makes this district special. It's what makes Texas high school football special. Especially, being able to play this type of game, you know, for a district championship is everything you would ever want."
Interesting note about the showdown, no Cooper coach has won the Crosstown Showdown in his 1st try since Randy Allen in 1991.
The Crosstown Showdown between Abilene High and Cooper is Friday night at Shotwell Stadium. The winner clinches a share of the district title.
