After a three-week wait to play the 2020 6-Man Class 1A Division II championship game, the tiny west Texas community of Balmorhea is celebrating its first-ever high school football championship. Tuesday, Balmorhea beat Richland Springs 74-38 at San Angelo Stadium to capture the state title against the 9-time state champion Coyotes.
After the two traded touchdowns into the second quarter, Balmorhea scored 28 unanswered points to take a 44-16 halftime lead.
