1897-1898 Basketball Team in Jayton

I am trying to find out information regarding a photograph I came upon. It depicts a basketball team posing in front of a brick building. I assume it is a school and that it is from Jayton Texas. The team jersey says Jayton on the front and the basketball one of the players is holding says 97-98. Since the picture is extremely old, I am also assuming this means 1897-1898. If anyone can give me any information on this team, I would appreciate it.
Thanks, Dee Webb
