Of course, tickets are available at the gate before each game, and at a discounted price including student tickets the week of the game.

The Ragin’ Red’s other home games this season are against Texas High (Sept. 20), Chapel Hill (Oct. 11), Van (Oct. 25) and Carthage (Nov. 8, the end of the regular season).

Kilgore’s homecoming is the Texas High game.

At Sabine, season ticket-holders last year can come pick up their new tickets Aug. 5-9, at the cost of $25 per season ticket. On Aug. 12-16, the tickets that weren’t picked up will be on sale for the general public. This will be at the Sabine Elementary campus from 8 a.m. until 4 p.m. each day.

The Cardinals, coached by Rex Sharp, will have five home games: at home against Carlisle for the season opener on Aug. 30; vs. Shelbyville on Sept. 6; vs. Winnsboro on Oct. 11; vs. Mineola on Oct. 25; and the regular season finale against White Oak on Nov. 8.
