The Crosstown Showdown circled back around to Shotwell Stadium.

This meant two big pep rallies kicked off at Abilene High and Cooper High Friday morning.

The Abilene High cheerleaders prepared for the ‘blackout pep rallies’ by covering all their gyms windows.

Cooper high band members got a group of drum line members from the ‘80’s to perform a classic skit at their pep rally.
