CEDAR PARK, TX — The City of Cedar Park is encouraging the community to wear their finest green, black and silver this Friday, and cheer on the Cedar Park High School Timberwolves football team as they head to Arlington, Texas, to play for the state championship title.
A caravan of buses carrying team members is scheduled to depart Cedar Park High School on Friday at around 9:20 a.m., city officials wrote in an advisory.
In grand fashion, Cedar Park police officers will escort a caravan of buses carrying the Timberwolves along a route that includes several stops along the way, including Westside Elementary; Cypress Elementary; Naumann Elementary; Cedar Park Middle School. From Cedar Park Middle School, the caravan will proceed down Cypress Creek Road past Cedar Park Fire Station Number 2, then past Cedar Park City Hall.
The entire route is anticipated to take about 45 minutes. To help safely space everyone out at different locations along the route this year, the city has created a Google Map with each stop marked with a little green football icon. Given the ongoing reach of the coronavirus, the city encourages those cheering along the route to maintain a safe distance of six feet from others and to wear protective face coverings. Additionally, city officials ask those showing up along the route to not gather in crowds.
From Cedar Park, the buses will head to AT&T Stadium —home of the Dallas Cowboys — in Arlington, to play the Denton Ryan Raiders for the Class 5A Division I State Football Championship Title at 7 p.m. The game will be broadcast on Fox Sports Southwest/FSSW Plus1.
"The City of Cedar Park salutes the Cedar Park Timberwolves football team and Coach Carl Abseck, and wishes them victory," city officials wrote in the advisory. "Go Wolves!"
