Paris High School, after two weeks of pre-season football practice, will scrimmage Henderson High School at 6:45 p.m. Friday at Wildcat Stadium.
It was Henderson that ended the Wildcats’ season last season in the first round of the playoffs. Paris finished its year with a 9-2 record, and Henderson went 11-3 before losing in the Class 3A-Division I state semifinals.
The two schools’ freshmen and junior varsity squads will precede the varsity at 5 p.m., simultaneously going opposite ways from the 40-yard line.
Admission will be $2 for adults and $1 for children, with all proceeds going to the THSCEF Benevolence Fund, which assists athletes and coaches with special needs or hardships.
To date the fund, established by the Texas High School Coaches Association board of directors, has paid $139,000 to athletes and coaches with special needs, plus sizeable donations to the Red Cross Hurricane Relief Fund.
To date, more than 740 schools have participated in the THSCEF benefit scrimmages, which have come to be known as Our Day to Shine.
