Veterans Memorial preparing for inexperienced Southwest Legacy team

The Eagles say they're not underestimating their opponent who's making its first ever appearance in the area round.

Seventh-ranked Veterans Memorial has been on the playoff stage before. Meanwhile, their area round opponent will be making its first ever appearance in round two Friday night.

The Eagles have been deep playoff runs in the last three years including a trip to the state quarterfinal last season. Coach Cody Simper says his team isn't underestimating a Southwest Legacy team that notched its first playoff win in program history last week.

Veterans Memorial (10-0) will face Southwest Legacy (7-4) Friday night at 7:30 PM at San Antonio's Alamo Stadium. 3News will have highlights Friday during the 10 PM news.
