At 7:30 p.m., all AT&T Games of Texas athlete participants will enter the stadium representing all 21 of the AT&T Games of Texas sports during the Parade of Athletes. Next, the Zooperstars! featuring a variety of mascots ranging from “Dennis Frogman” to “Clammy Sosa,” to Roger “Clam”ens will entertain the crowd as they flip, dance, bounce and shake.
