LAWTON, OK (KSWO) - Lawton High School is preparing to cheer on its football team Friday as they get ready to head to Yukon to take on Bixby for the 6A-II championship game.

LHS students are going to line up in the back parking lot at 1:47 p.m. to wish the team luck as members board buses to leave campus. The Wolverines will then be treated to a pregame meal at First Baptist Church in Lawton. At 2:30 p.m., the team buses, escorted by Lawton Police and LPS PD, will head north on Fort Sill Boulevard. Students from Whittier Elementary will line the road to cheer them on. Students from Central Middle School are going to line Cache Road to do the same thing as the team heads east to I-44. Freedom Elementary School students are going to line Fort Sill's Polo Field fence with signs of support for the team as they pass.

Kickoff for the championship matchup is set for 7 p.m. in Yukon.
