(HOUSTON)— They’re more than ready for some football in Conroe ISD.

Conroe High School is celebrating 100 years of high school football this season with special guests appearing at each home game.

“We are honoring two teams from Booker T. Washington High School,” said principal Mike Weatherly.

NEWS 92 FM’s Joe Segura reports on the honors. Listen here:

The 1965 Washington High School football team will also be honored at the game Friday in Conroe.

“The 1960 and the 1965 teams that won the state championship…we are going to be presenting them with state championship rings.”

When the football programs started, Texas schools were still segregated with Booker T. Washington High competing in the Prairie View Interscholastic League.

Prior to Friday’s game, the Mayor of Conroe will proclaim Sept. 5 as “Booker T. Washington Bulldog Championship Day.”

The game at Buddy Moorhead Memorial Stadium will see the former players honored at halftime.
