Our recent trip through Texas provide me with the opportunity to snap some Stadium Project photos of a tiny school that caught my eye during my first trip outside of El Paso in 2015. The subject of my affection was a blue water tower touting Fort Hancock High School’s 6-Man state championships in 1990 and 1991.
In actuallity, the Mustangs actually claimed four straight state championships from 1988 through 1991, which puts them in exclusive company. Only three other schools have won four or more consecutive titles. Lake Travis leads with five straight championships, followed by Fort Hancock, Celina and Sealy with four each.
Fort Hancock, with abouit 1,700 residents, is a tiny town on the Mexico border.
When I talked with a school office worker before taking the photos, she told me that the town was hoping to get someone to spruce-up the water tower that is one the eastbound side Interstate 10 about 50 miles west of El Paso with a new coat of paint.
