Since its opening, the Texas Sports Hall of Fame has served as a permanent place of honor for over 300 of the greatest and most influential athletes and sports figures in Texas history.
In the fall evenings, high school football takes center stage in Homestead, Florida. With several local schools that have been around for a long time alongside newer schools that have popped up, the bleachers fill up with fans. Students line the sidelines alongside old-timers to watch some good old-fashioned gridiron battles under the lights at Orange Bowl Field.
In 2011, the Urbana began construction on several projects to update the older facilities. The school demolished its football and soccer fields in the spring of 2011 and combined them into a new state-of-the-art football/soccer field with artificial turf and several bleachers. It was called the Urbana Tigers Athletic Complex and the project cost an estimated $4.3 million.
In the state of Texas, there are few more historic venues – at least in terms of high school football – than Alamo Stadium in San Antonio, Texas. Located on a hill near the city’s famous Downtown – home of the eponymous Alamo, Riverwalk, and Tower of the Americas – Alamo Stadium is the home field for the football programs of the San Antonio Independent School District (SAISD), and the venue has become a beloved institution across the state.
High school football is king in the state of Texas. Few teams have reigned atop the mountain as state champions more than the co-occupants of D. W. Rutledge Stadium – the Judson High School Rockets. Located in a suburb of Converse, Texas, Judson High School has reached the Texas state football championship 11 times, and won the final prize a remarkable six times.
