The Friday night lights will be bright and shining this week as the 2015 version of the Frenship Tigers kickoff the new season versus El Paso Burges. The Tigers and Mustangs are set to play Friday at 7:00 p.m. at Ratliff Stadium in Odessa.
Frenship is coming off a successful debut season in Class 6A last year. The Tigers finished with a 9-3 record and made it to the Region I Area playoffs. FHS won the District 2-6A championship and currently holds a 22-game district winning streak that dates back to 2010.
This is the second consecutive season that Frenship opens the season against Burges in Odessa. Last season, the Tigers romped to a 59-7 victory. Burges ended 2014 with a 1-9 record.
