DALLAS -- They've known each other since first grade, but their friendship didn't truly blossom until the fifth grade. That's when they started playing football.
The two buddies met during their days of playing indoor soccer. When they reached the long-awaited first year of football, they dropped that sport. There was just something about this game.
Oklahoma Sooners commit Jordan Mastrogiovanni, Texas Longhorns commit Jake Oliver have been friends and teammates since they were in the fifth grade. Come next year, though, they'll be on opposite sidelines of the Red River Rivalry game.
