SOUTH JORDAN -- A Utah high school football team is being given a chance to play like the pros. Bingham High will be playing a top-ranked team in the brand new Dallas Cowboys Stadium this Labor Day.

The Miners are heading into the land where high school football rules—Texas—and they'll play one of the best teams there: Trinity High.

"They've won the Texas State Championship at the highest level two of the last four years," said Bingham Head Coach David Peck.

The coach says his team has a huge amount of respect for Trinity, and football teams in Texas have an advantage because their coaches don't also teach on the side. But no matter how fast the Trinity players are, Peck says they won't be faster than his guys.

"Harvey Langi runs a 4.4 [40 meter]. That's as fast as any running back in the NFL," Peck said.

However, Peck did tell his punter he has no chance to hit the big screen at the top of that new stadium, so don't even try.
