Notable Game[edit]

In 1938, University Interscholastic League Director, Rodney Kidd, asked coaches at Prairie Lea High School and Martindale High School located just south of Austin to study the rules for six man football. They later played an exhibition game for UIL officials, who must have been impressed, as they officially sanctioned six-man play for the fall of 1938. Both schools competed in six-man that first fall and tied for the district 3 title with Dripping Springs. In that first year, only 55 schools participated in six-man football. A year later, the number grew to 112 schools. At one time as many as 160 teams across Texas have participated.[4]

Prairie Lea would discontinue its football program in the late 1950s, but would resume play in the fall of 2001.
