Andrews - We are just days away from the UIL realignment that could change the face of west Texas sports.
One school district could be taking a big leap.
Sports is at the center of just about everything at Andrews ISD.
Come next football season, the Mustang Bowl could be drawing a different crowd.
It'll be a reality if the district moves from a 3A District to a 4A.
"Moving up I think would be better because Andrews is getting way bigger," Andrews High School student Dylan Forbes said.
The district has grown by leaps and bounds the past few years. In October, the district was just 17 students away from the 4A classification.
Students say when it comes to sports, they're ready for change.
"I think it's a good thing. I think it presents a challenge and makes everyone work harder," Andrews High School student Caleb O’Connor said.
"I think we need to compete with bigger schools," Forbes said.
"I think it'll give us more competition," Andrews High School student Dakota Velasquez said.
When it comes to sports, the students say they're always looking for a challenge.
UIL will announce the realignments on Monday.
