The backyard battle with 10,000 people watching: What makes Cedar Hill vs. DeSoto unlike any other game
The winner of Friday's game at Cedar Hill will have the inside track to the district title. The loser, more than likely, is destined for a 150-mile bus ride on the first playoff weekend.
But that won't be part of any motivational speeches for this year's Battle of Belt Line.
"It's Cedar Hill week," DeSoto coach Todd Peterman said. "That's all that matters."
Six miles away, it's DeSoto week. And that's all that matters.
"It's such an intense rivalry," Cedar Hill coach Joey McGuire said. "You're going to be happy for the year, or you're going to hear about it for the rest of your life if you live in south Dallas."
