The 40th Annual Patriotic Show and game are going to be held at Kyle Field, the Texas A&M football stadium, on Friday, Oct. 16 at 7 p.m.

This rivalry game between Tomball and Tomball Memorial always draws a large crowd, and due to social distancing guidelines set by the district, the Tomball stadium is limited to 50 percent capacity. The two school bands alone would take up most of the capacity.

“Having the game at Kyle Field will be beneficial to the people who want to attend the game,” junior quarterback Cale Hellums said. “We can have more people support us as we play Memorial.”

Many players are excited to play in this huge stadium, as it’s unlike any field they’ve played on before.

“I think it’s going to be a really cool atmosphere,” senior middle linebacker Mickey Nolen said. “It will let us have a much more realistic football experience than [any]one else in the state is getting right now.”

The extra room also allows for both schools to have groups perform at half time for the annual show.

“It’s going to be a great Patriotic Show,” senior cornerback Rhett Sewalt. “Kyle Field’s great because everyone can go and stay socially distanced.”

This game will prove to be an interesting one, since once again both Tomball schools are in the same district. Last year, the Wildcats won 48-14, but the Coogs are looking to win this rematch.
