Believe it or not, high school football teams would love to be working on Thanksgiving.

Calallen is preparing for a rematch with Boerne Champion. The Wildcats ended the Chargers' season in last year's region semifinal, 60-39, thanks to a punishing running game.

The 'Cats are cherishing a chance to contend for a state championship, but know that Boerne Champion, a team that returns eight defensive starters from last year's team, will look for revenge.

Calallen and Boerne Champion kick off at 1:30pm on Friday at San Antonio Farris Stadium. The winner will reach the Region IV Championship against the winner of Victoria East or Edcouch-Elsa.
