Texas crowns 6-Man champs

texas high school football

One of the great things about 6-Man high school football in Texas is the University Interscholastic League treats it the same way it treats its 11-Man big brothers. Even though a 6-Man field is 80-yards long and 40 feet wide, the UIL plays its two 6-Man championship games in AT&T Stadium, the home of the Dallas Cowboys and all ten of the 11-man state championships this weekend.

History was made in the 1A Division II championship game Wednesday as Strawn High’s kicker K-Lani Nava became the first female to score a point in a Texas high school football game. Nava was 9-of-10 on extra point tries as Shawn beat Balmorhea 78-42 in the championship game.

In the Class 1A Division I championship game, Borden County won its second straight state championship with a 60-22 win over Jonesboro.
