JT-Wylie set for Rose Stadium


The John Tyler vs. Wylie area football playoff game has been switched to Tyler, JT coach Ricklan Holmes announced.

The Lions (10-1) and Pirates (5-6) will play Friday on Earl Campbell Field at Trinity Mother Frances Rose Stadium. Kickoff for the Class 4A Division I game is 6 p.m.

The Gilmer and Atlanta game, which was scheduled for Rose Stadium, will now be played at 6 p.m. Friday at Lobo Stadium in Longview.

The JT game was moved to Tyler because the Lions previously played a playoff game in Wylie in 2010, a 20-16 Pirate win.
