Did You Know?

Waco ISD Stadium continues to be the most used high school venue for the state playoffs. In 2013, the stadium hosted 12 playoff games. Only the Dallas Cowboys' AT&T Stadium hosted more games and that is because the site has been designated for the state championships.

Friendly hosts, a great location and a first class facility make Waco ISD Stadium the destination of choice for the high school playoffs!
