A History of High School Football At Texas Stadium

There is a good argument to be made that the state of Texas has the greatest high school football in the United States. In a state where things tend to be bigger, high school football seems to be the biggest of them all. Due to the vast popularity of high school football in Texas, it was not uncommon for Texas Stadium to be the site of the state high school football championships. High school football triple headers were not uncommon throughout the 1980s and 90s. Texas Stadium also was the home field for two high local high schools. In 1979, Plano Senior High School used Texas Stadium as its home field because of a school prank that caused their home field to be unplayable. Highland Park High School also used the stadium for a season while their old field was torn down in order to construct a new one. One of the last high school games was played in 2007 and saw Southlake Carroll High School lose for the first time in four years to Miami’s Northwestern High School. Over the years, Texas Stadium became a Texas high school icon. Thousands of athletes played and hundreds of thousands of adoring Texans flocked to this iconic stadium.
