WATCH: First News at Four live from the Consol Tigers' first football pep rally

COLLEGE STATION, Tex. (KBTX) - Friday night lights are back in the Brazos Valley as high school football kicks off.

The A&M Consolidated High School Tigers in College Station begin their season at home against Killeen Ellison at 7 p.m. Aug. 30.

But Friday football isn’t just about the team itself.

“About 25 percent of our students are involved in the game in some way,” said Consol Principal Gwen Elder. “Players, dance team, cheerleaders, student trainers, video team, and more.”

KBTX’s First News at Four took the show on the road to a Consol pep rally Friday afternoon. See the video player above for all four segments highlighting the students who bring the Friday night lights to life.
