The annual Holy Bowl in San Antonio kicks off at Alamo Stadium on Saturday, pitting the Central Catholic Buttons against the Holy Cross Knights.
This isn’t your typical rivalry game though, as both teams worked side by side on Labor Day at the Guadalupe Community Center. But there will be plenty on the line when the game kicks off on Saturday night.
For the Buttons, a win gives them a perfect 2-0 season start after they earned a 40-20 week one win over San Antonio Christian.
Quarterback Nick Chavez delivered on 16 of his 23 pass attempts for 219 yards and two touchdowns. His target for a majority of those passes was Junior Gibby Garza.
Garza, who saw time lining up at running back during his sophomore campaign, had seven receptions for 131 yards and a touchdown last week, with an additional 18 yards coming on the ground.
Holy Cross will be looking for their first win of the series as they narrowly lost to Austin Hyde Park last Friday night.
The Knights struggled to establish their passing game, but quarterback Gibby Salas is mobile and was able to break loose for 58 yards.
Saturday’s game will be a home game for Central Catholic, and it will kick off at 7 p.m.
