High School Football

High school football champions and scores Updated 7 months ago

University Interscholastic League (UIL)

The University Interscholastic League, which governs literary and athletic competition among schools in Texas, was organized in 1910 as a division of the University of Texas extension service. Initially, it sponsored forensic competition. By 1920, the UIL organized the structure of the high school football game in response to the growing popularity of the sport in Texas. Town football teams had begun competing around the state in the early 1890s.

From 1920 until 1947, the UIL named only one state football champion for the larger schools. Smaller schools were limited to regional titles. Beginning in 1948, champions were named by divisions based on school enrollment, with the introduction of City, AA and A divisions.

Over the years, other adjustments have been made in determining the divisions, so that today the divisions range from six-man competition for the smaller schools, designated 1A in 2014, to the largest 6A schools. In the 1990s, subdivisions were added within 2A-5A divisions, with the larger schools included in the Division I. Subdivisions were added to the two other divisions for the season competition in 2006.

Following are listed the champions by UIL division, along with the runner up, and the points scored by each team in the championship game. Included in years 1940-68 are the teams competing in the Prairie View Interscholastic League (PVIL, first called the Interscholastic League of Colored Schools). Between 1965 and 1968, the schools were integrated into the UIL.

Texas Association of Private and Parochial Schools (TAPPS)

The Texas Association of Private and Parochial Schools (TAPPS) is the largest group of private schools in the state with more than 225 schools. The interscholastic competition began in 1978 and was significantly expanded when the Texas Christian Interscholastic League ceased to exist in 2000 and many of those schools moved into TAPPS.

Southwest Preparatory Conference (SPC)

The Southwest Preparatory Conference (SPC), established in 1952, is an athletic conference of certain private schools in Oklahoma and Texas.

(OT refers to overtime.)
