Tornillo High School’s football team will be featured on a national TV show called the “Religion of Sports” on Wednesday.

The show will highlight an international game from this past season where the Coyotes took on the Titans from Juarez. 

“Religion of Sports,” airs at 6 p.m., local time, on the AT&T’s AUDIENCE Network. This will be the third episode of the fourth season. 

The synopsis of the episode reads: “The fourth episode of Season 3 highlights a high school football game that means so much more because it is played between two teams on opposite sides of the Texas/Mexico border. The episode introduces the Titanes who call Juarez, Mexico home. Back in their home country they are a powerhouse and have won 6 of the last 7 state championships. On other sideline are the Coyotes of Tornillo, Texas, a team on the rise. The episode dives into a number of hot button issues going on between the two countries right now and how these kids use football as a means of opportunity to escape many of the challenges they face on a daily basis off the field.”
