Stephenville High School senior quarterback Gavin Rountree (normally No. 8 but wearing a No. 4 practice jersey) is pictured throwing a pass during last week's scrimmage against Glen Rose. The Yellow Jackets opened their 2020 regular-season football schedule Friday night versus the Sweetwater Mustangs (7:30 p.m. kickoff at the Mustang Bowl in Sweetwater). Look for the final score and the ET scoring summary online after the game tonight, then get the complete game story and photos in the Wednesday, Sept. 2 edition of the Empire-Tribune. Unfortunately, due to unforeseen production problems, the publication of the E-T's annual football preview special section featuring a detailed look at the Yellow Jackets personnel, photos, schedules and a look at the 2020 opponents has been delayed until that Sept. 2 edition. The Yellow Jackets will have their first home game on Friday, Sept. 4, taking on Lampasas. The kickoff is set for 7:30 p.m., at Tarleton's Memorial Stadium.
