Wellington Skyrockets not afraid to play at Cowboys Stadium

Wellington, Texas  - We're just a day away now from the Wellington Skyrockets taking the field down at "Jerry World" or as most know it, Cowboys Stadium, looking to bring a state title back to the panhandle.

If we haven't mentioned it enough, this is one of the biggest games in school history for the Skyrockets. They've been so close to getting to the championship game the past three years, they say it's finally their time.

But they aren't intimidated to play on the field few get the chance to grace.

"I've spoke with some guys who have been down there, coaches, their advice to me is get there early and let your kids get all that out fo the way. And we're going to. We're going to get there and let them look it over, and hopefully once the game gets going we'll get into a routine of just playing hard nose football," Wade Williams, Wellington Head Football Coach said.

This is going to be a battle of two undefeated teams. One will go home disappointed, and the other will bring back a state championship. The Falls City Beavers are 14-0 and the Skyrockets 13-0.
