Week one of high school football is in the books and there are still 10 more regular season weeks to. Many teams hope to stretch it to the limit to play 16 games which would include the state championship.

This year’s state championship has been moved from AT&T Stadium in Arlington, home of the Dallas Cowboys, to RNG Stadium in Houston, home of the Houston Texan.

The Cowboys have an NFL Network game slated for Saturday, Dec. 19 when they play host to the New York Jets, and that Saturday will mark the final day of the state championship matchups. Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said he tried to get that game rescheduled to Sunday, Dec. 20 but the NFL did not approve. Houston jumped at the opportunity and will host therefore host the 2015 championship games.

Several East Texas teams will hope to make a trip to H-Town when all said and done but until then, they’ll be focused on the season before entering into district play.

High school football teams in Tyler include the Robert E. Lee Red Raiders and John Tyler Lions, both of whom have made multiple trips to the state championship and play their home games at Trinity Mother Francis Rose Stadium.
