There’s nothing bigger for Texas high school football players than a trip to AT&T Stadium, especially if it’s for a state championship game. Unfortunately for Balmorhea and Richland Springs, who were schedule to play for the University Interscholastic League’s Six Man Class 1A Division II title on Wednesday, the dream of winning a state title in the home of the Dallas Cowboys, will have to wait.
A diagnosis of COVID-19 inside the Balmorhea program has postponed the title game to a later date. When it is finally played, it won’t be in the massive NFL stadium.
According to the UIL Football Playoff Information Handbook, if one or both teams are unable to play in the state championship game due to COVID-19, teams will be allowed to reschedule games at a site determined by both schools.
The other seven championship games scheduled for this weekend, including the Six-Man Class 1A Division I title game will go on as planned.
