Fans, friends and families are invited to a send-off party, as the Early Longhorns, bi-district champs, advance to the I Region I Semi-Final Championship game Friday.

The ’Horns (8-3) face Kermit (9-2) at 7:30 p.m. Friday, in the historic Mustang Bowl in Sweetwater.

The send-off is set for 2 p.m. Friday at the Early High School parking lot. Then, from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m., fans, friends and families who traveled to the game are invited to a tailgate party at the west side of the football field in the softball parking lot. Hamburgers and sausage are on the menu, and the entrees will be served with chips. Just bring chairs and your own drink and be there to cheer the Longhorns on.

The Early Longhorn Booster Club meets at 7 p.m. every Monday in the Student Activity Center at Early High School. All are invited to be a part and help support the Early teams.
