You expect to see the high school marching band in the stands, and on the field, supporting the players on the football team.
But the players on the Coppell High School football team returned the favor recently.
The Coppell Cowboys' varsity players were in the stands last week to cheer on both the junior varsity and varsity bands during a competition at Tommy Stanridge Stadium in the Carrollton-Farmers Branch ISD.
The latest news from around North Texas.
And the bands did not disappoint - both finished the UIL Region 31 marching contest by earning 1st Division ratings in the competition.
