We understand fans who use a Waggoner National Bank debit card are having issues purchasing a ticket for tonight's game. Fans who could not purchase a ticket due to using a Waggoner National Bank debit card will be allowed to enter the gate without a ticket. Vernon ISD is operating this under the Honor System, where we are trusting those fans to purchase their ticket once the debit card issue is resolved. The link to purchase tickets for tonight's game will remain open until 9 p.m. Monday. We hope everyone enjoys the game. GO LIONS!!!

Abbott has called a special session to, in my opinion, do great harm to Texas public schools...." To read the full article, please follow this link www.vernonisd.org and scroll down.
