Texas Loves Its High School Football

This past weekend(Dec 19-21) was a festival of high school football state championship games, ten games in all.  The previous weekend featured the Six Man championships.

Football Party In Texas

Texas high school football is organized by classification according to the student population of each school with 5A being the largest, followed by 4A, 3A, 2A, 1A and then Six Man.  Each classification has two divisions, once again student population determines which teams in each district are designated Div I or II.

With that out of the way, twelve state champions were crowned in all.  What is amazing about the two Six Man championship games played on 14 Dec., the attendance for the Div.I game between Crowell(population 928) and May(population 1,942) was 6,842.   In contrast, the attendance at the Florida 8A state championship game was 9,979.

The total attendance for all twelve state championship games was in excess of 230,000.  The 5A Div.I state championship game, featuring the #2 team in the country set a new attendance record for a Texas state championship game breaking a record that had stood since 1977, with 54,347.

Even Gov. Perry was there to celebrate the festivities, presenting the game offensive and defensive MVP awards, as well as the Championship Trophies.

Besides numerous teams repeating as state champs, one team, Aledo High School, won the 4A Div.II championship and also set a new National Record for most points scored in a season,breaking the 1,000 point barrier with 1,023.

It was a festival for those of us who truly love our high school football.  The finality of it means another long nine month wait until we get to do it again.

BTW, the attendance records at this year’s state championship festivities is also a little embarrassing to the numerous NCAA bowl games.
