SHERMAN, TX ― The biggest game of the year is this weekend for both Sherman and Denison, but before the game Friday night, it's the Battle of the Ax Blood Drive.
The Texoma Regional Blood Center is hosting its annual Battle of the Axe Blood Drive starting Monday.
For every donor who comes in to donate at the blood center on Texoma Parkway, they will also vote for their favorite team. Their donation of one pint of blood will also put them in a drawing for tickets for Friday night's game. One person will win 2 tickets to the Sherman side, and one person will win 2 tickets for the Denison side.
"You know how competitive people are. They love to go out and support their team, but at the same time they'll be saving lives by donating a pint of blood," Deedee Morehead of the Texoma Regional Blood Center says.
Tickets for the game, which is in Sherman at Bearcat Stadium this year, are on sale now.
First Sports will have complete coverage all week and on the Friday Night Blitz.
